Plateau

by KIM COLIN & SAM HECHT

One off creation produced as prototypes for “Spirit of Resurgence” exhibition, Venice Glass Week 2020. Prototypes limited in number, product rollout under review.

In mathematics, the formulae called ‘Plateau’s Problem’ is to show the existence of a minimal surface with a given boundary. Plateau are unique vases created by Kim Colin and Sam Hecht with a one of a kind process. The glass is blown into a rounded shape and immediately after a flat horizontal textured surface and an ‘L shape’ textured mold is pushed against the vase until a square corner is formed on one side of the vase. With this technique, Kim Colin and Sam Hecht designed a vase that can find its perfect fits in unusual corners, producing rare equilibriums.
