The Roche Vase is a sculptural wooden vase exploring abstract geometric volumes, original artwork available exclusively for ALIUM by Nué Studio.
The monolithic form references stone-like rock formations that evoke a feeling of permanency and longevity. It offers a reflection about slowing down and appreciating our surroundings. The material is traditional danish pinewood chosen for its sustainable value and Scandinavian heritage.
HANDCRAFTED IN COPENHAGEN
The vases have been designed as honest sculptural pieces that exposes the material’s natural cracks and deformities created by time.
Handmade by Nué Studio in Copenhagen, each piece has been through a thorough process, paying attention to the smallest details. Starting with local wood sourcing, drying, and preparation. Then carefully sculpting the wooden shapes and applying the white oil finishing, the process takes around 4-5 weeks. Finally, once cut to perfect form, a small glass cylinder is placed at the top of the work, which makes it possible to arrange fresh or dried flowers in the vase.
Nue Studio is a french-danish furniture and interior design studio based in Copenhagen. The founders Alice Delsenne & Jacob Brinth created Nue Studio in 2018 in Copenhagen after finishing their design studies respectively at L’EDNA in France and KADK in Copenhagen.
Their aesthetic is based on Danish minimalism, married with bold sculptural forms known from french design. Referencing nature and archetypal architecture, lets the duo create contemporary designs while bringing a sense of timelessness.
Exploring the unique bridge between the French and Danish design cultures. While respecting the Danish furniture tradition that uses natural materials in functional ways, the design duo mixes this ethos with the more playful and bold shapes found in French design.
When Nué Studio was founded, Alice & Jacob sat down and wrote a handbook that defines everything about how they should live – literally everything. How they eat, what they wear, how they shape their home and so on. This holistic guide is based on the values of minimalism, slow-living, and sustainability. These values then take physical form in the spaces and objects that they create. The way they live is also the way they design and vice versa.
