The Echasse Vase combines the classic elegance of a traditional glass vase with a playful, light expression.
The word échasse is French for stilts – and this round-bottomed vase is anchored to the table by four slender legs that resemble stilts. The vase takes inspiration from test tubes in laboratories, and like the original the Echasse has a classic drop-like shape, constructed from coloured glass that gives the vase a unique expression. Echasse is available in a large version, which stands on the floor.
Born in Germany, Theresa Arns graduated in 2013 from The Royal Danish Academy of Arts. As a student in Copenhagen she fell in love with the city and the Danish tradition in furniture design: ‘My plan was to go to Berlin after my studies, but I find Copenhagen very inspiring, so I stayed.’
Swiftly establishing a reputation as a design talent to watch, Theresa makes practical furniture, to be used every day, with soul: “I think I design in a quite ‘German’ way. I am very pragmatic, but I also think it’s important that the objects that we surround ourselves with have warmth and poetry.”
