Collaboration with Ori Shifrin Anavi
Faaza is a series of designed vases made of folded paper which can be easily collapsed and assembled. The project was born during the Covid pandemic and is a collaboration between two industrial designers, who are also close friends. With lockdowns and the financial crisis created in the pandemic times we wanted to create a project that would help people personalize their home environments using relatively cheap and accessible materials, inspired by takeaway food boxes.
Centered around the concept of reuse, Faaza vases give old bottles and cans a second life and function. The project is made of simple and accessible materials and can be easily shipped flat and assembled locally. The project can also be sent as a file and printed locally by local businesses and individuals, cutting shipping costs all together and minimizing carbon footprint.
As both of us specialize in ceramic design the project takes several inspirations from that discipline. The colors are inspired by delft blue and white colors, terracotta, and white porcelain. The design seeks to create a feeling of earthiness, and curvature that you would expect from a ceramic product, but in a light material, creating an element of surprise and playfulness.
