Little Bo Flower vase by Santiago Bautista

Home > Winners > #58545


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Little Bo

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Flower vase

INSPIRATION:
The intention behind this product was to create a vase where the flower is not an alien to the design but is in fact an essential part of the design itself. The flower becomes the head of this four legged creature and defines its ever changing personality.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Bo is a handcrafted porcelain vase which combines the simplicity of Scandinavian design with the subtlety of Spanish craftsmanship. The idea behind Bo is to introduced some playfulness in the realm of vases which is often a world of abstract and lifeless looking objects. The incomplete design of this animal-shaped vase invites the user to decide its final character by choosing from the wide variety of plants and flowers available in nature.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The user should choose from the various flowers and plants available in nature to define the character of their Bo.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Bo was first sketched in Copenhagen on February 2017. The production is currently ongoing.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Bo is handcrafted in Spain by experienced porcelain artisans. The exterior surface is brushed to obtain a raw matte finish while the interior surface is glazed to achieve watertightness.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
80 mm x 120 mm x 200.0 mm

TAGS:
porcelain, animal, vase, bo, handmade, danish, scandinavian, Santiago, Bautista, bau

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Despite the simplicity of the final outcome and the artisanal production of the piece, Bo is the result of a digital design process which involved the use of organic modeling software and 3d printing. This technology was an essential tool not only for prototyping, but also for generating the master model that guided the production. From the very beginning of the process a strong dialogue was established between the designer and the manufacturing artisans, and the model was modified several times to adapt to the physical constraints of the fabrication process.

CHALLENGE:
During the collaboration with the manufacturer, the original design had to be adjusted several times to align with the production techniques. The main challenge rested on the legs of the piece as they are a critical element during fabrication. Several proportions were proposed by the designer and tested in the workshop until the final production was set.

NAME:
Bau Design

PROFILE:
Bau Design is a Danish design studio established in 2016 by Spanish architect Santiago Bautista. Bau design appears in a climate of extreme consumerism where big brands are inviting the customers to buy new products every season. As a result, the quality of the products is dropping significantly to make them cheaper and less durable, promoting the idea of disposable products. Bau Design aims to design, produce and sell beautiful and durable products manufactured under fair labor conditions and market them at a price which aligns with the intrinsic value of the object.
