Cocco
Fabrica for Design Miami

This tutti-frutti subject has taken a fundamental role in the making process for this pair of designed glassware pieces. The coconut halves were used as the mould to blow the glass into, thus creating the hemisphere shaped base for the carafe and fruit bowl. The smooth simple line of the glass has been contrasted with the integration of the rough hard surface of the coconut shell. Both objects balance on the elegant tripod frame, a direct reference to the coconuts distinctive three holes.
