I’ve seen these talked about in several different places, and most recently happened upon them when perusing Moss’s site (which is always dangerous for me). Made of recycled wine and beer bottles, these vases are the result of a collaboration between Emma Woffenden and Tord Boontje.
“The idea behind the collection is to use what we have. We take away, we appropriate, we transform. Hard, sharp, clean forms, original colours, as found within the bottles. We believe that Transglass is a glassware collection with a contemporary beauty that shows a positive attitude toward the environment.”
The color of each varies, of course, so you could end up with shades of green, clear and brown, and perhaps slightly different sizes- but that just means they’re more special.
