PLATEAU

by KIM COLIN & SAM HECHT

In mathematics, the formulae called ‘Plateau’s Problem’ shows the existence of a minimal surface with a given boundary. Plateau is a collection of one-of-a-kind vases designed by Kim Colin and Sam Hecht and manufactured using a peculiar technique. The glass is blown into a rounded shape and immediately after a flat horizontal textured surface and an ‘L shape’ textured mould is pushed against the vase until a square corner is formed on one side of the vase. With this technique, the vase perfectly fits in unusual corners, producing rare equilibriums.
