TWIST

TWIST IS A SERIES OF OBJECTS INSPIRED BY THE SPIRAL MOVEMENT OF THE WATER AT SOME MOMENTS, REFLECTING THE NATURAL BEHAVIOUR OF THE WATER.

SAVINGWATER 1/2

WHY DO WE WASTE WATER? ACTUALLY, WE CAN PREVENT THAT WASTE EVEN IF JUST A DROP AND CAN HELP NATURE. I WANTED TO SUGGEST A DESIGN SOLUTION EVEN IT CREATES A MINOR WATER SAVING. IF YOU HAVE A SINGLE FLOWER THEN YOU CAN USE THE VASE WITH LESS WATER; IF YOU HAVE MORE FLOWERS THEN YOU CAN USE THE WHOLE PARTS OF THE VASE WITH MORE WATER.

DROPS

THE WATER DROPS, FALLING FROM THE SKY SHOW THEMSELVES IN DIFFERENT COLORS, SHAPES AND SIZES WITH THE HELP OF NATURE BEHIND IT. I LOVE THE TIMES WHEN IT RAINS. INSPIRED BY RAIN THAT BRINGS LIFE, DROP VASES WILL KEEP THE FLOWERS ALIVE…

DROPS/WAVES

IT'S A GREAT MOMENT TO SEE A RAIN DROP FALLING INTO THE WATER... FASTER THAN WHAT YOU COMPREHEND, WHILE FASCINATING WHEN YOU LOOK. SUCCESSIVELY FORMING DISTINCT DROPS, YET COMING TOGETHER IN THE END.

MOUNTAINS

IT RAINS, FLOWS, BECOMES A SMALL RIVER. THEN THE RIVER GROWS AND POURS INTO THE SEA. MOUNTAINS THAT KEEP WATER, MEAN LIFE. LIKE ALL THE BIG AND SMALL MOUNTAINS DO, THIS DESIGN GIVES LIFE TO THE FLOWERS TOO.

OMNIA LETTERS

OMNIA REFERS TO HIGH QUALITY GLASS PRODUCTS. SO, EVERY LETTER OF THE OMNIA IS IMPORTANT AND EACH LETTER HAS ITS OWN STORY. WE CAN USE THE LETTER WE WANT AND MAKE IT VALUABLE BY PUTTING THE FLOWERS IN.
