i like these diamond-shaped vases, by the bouroullec’s for iittala. there are five sizes in seven tones in the collection, making for some nice combinations and arrangements. the video, below, shows part of the manufacturing process and thought behind the collection.
the technology is based on acme’s tornado whistle, engineered through the principle of wave interference – meaning it can produce a highpitched, high volume sound without the need for any moving parts. the shape of the whistle also prevents it from being pushed into the wearer’s mouth in case of a fall. the nylon neckband comes tied with a safety break free knot. It sits securely around your neck but if you pull it off with a quick snap, the knot will break.
