The ’Meadows’ collection vases are brought to life by the innovative Czech designer Roman Šedina. Its shape and style are inspired by Ancient Japanese pottery, whereby the designer utilized a sophisticated method of material layering to create the item. Here, the pottery-making process is deliberately exposed, with visible traces of the designer’s working method being left on the finished product. A very subtle yet eye-catching piece, indeed – and it looks great just about anywhere!
For Roman, designing is like solving puzzles, and the fact that designers are always limited in some way is what he appreciates the most about the job. His designs, which are now gaining popularity all over Europe, are straightforward, elegant and intentionally imperfect. This is because one of Roman’s main inspirations is the Japanese technique Wabi-sabi, which translates as ‘acceptance of imperfection’.
