Details

With Christophe Pillet's Shibuya vases, Kartell conducts an experiment that is unique in the world: making plastic “precious”, rich and full-bodied, as if it were blown glass from Murano. Shibuya vases have a pierced lid that can transform them into table accessories and not just decorative objects. Beyond their multi-functional aspect, the unique aspect of this project is the fact that the vases have two coloured bands with no interruption in the material's surface, guaranteeing perfect water tightness. Colour is the key player in this project: its intensity and depth, combined with the full-bodied plastic, makes this object especially precious, even though it is made industrially and sold at an industrial price.

MATERIALS:

  • PMMA transparent or colored in bulk

MEASUREMENTS:

  • Height: 22 cm / 8.625 inch
  • Diameter: 27 cm / 10.625 inch

Christophe Pillet

France, 1959

Christophe Pillet was educated at the Decorative Arts School in Nice and the Domus Academy in Milan. He works with everything from product and furniture design to interior and set design. Pillet created his own agency in 1993. In the same year he was nominated 'Designer of the Year’ at the Salon du Meuble de Paris. His customers are L’Oreal, Lacoste, Lancel and the renowned Hôtel Sezz in St Tropez amont others.

Lucidity of expression and the search for simplicity are key principles in Pillet’s work. Trends hold little interest for Pillet, who curiously looks around and creates designs to improve what already exists and adds what is missing. Pillet has been honored with several awards, such as Createur de l’Année at Salon du Meuble, Prix d’Excellence at Salon International du Luminaire as well as Best hotel bathroom by Idéobain trade show France.
