Ottilie Pink Marble Vase







‘Ottilie Vase’ in Portugal Pink is a part of Bloc Studios’ 2019 Affinità Elettive collection designed by the Milano-based firm Studiopepe, which was created by studying the materiality of rare kinds of marble as well as the effect of combining different materials. The collection is inspired by the scientific process of "elective affinities", which refers to the characteristic of some chemical compounds that, although linked to another element, tend to leave the first connection in order to form a new bond with a new element. The Affinità Elettive collection includes four objects in different marble variations: two vases, a bowl and a tray that fit together into a cohesive set. With its fluid, rounded forms, ‘Ottile Vase’ is a refreshing reinterpretation of an everyday object. The sculptural blush pink marble vase is delicately handcrafted in order to reveal the unique natural characteristics and colour variations of each block of marble.
