This hand-blown glass vase was designed by Jakub Berdych Karpelis, one of the two founders of the well-known Czech design studio Qubus. It is a simple yet distinctive piece of home decor as well as a somewhat sarcastic commentary on the ambiguous meaning of the word ‘love’ in the 21st century. It will look marvelous on your shelf, with or without flowers.
Jakub is the co-founder of Qubus, the cult design studio, and one of the leading figures of contemporary Czech design. Originally, he studied to be a sculptor, but he later moved on from it to design, glass and porcelain. While he is often labeled as a designer, he himself considers his work to be more on the art side of things – mainly because his pieces are often comedic and not very serious.
