Shibuya Vase

Designed by:  Christophe Pillet
Manufactured by:  Kartell

With Christophe Pillet's Shibuya vases, Kartell conducts an experiment that is unique in the world: making plastic “precious”, rich and full-bodied, as if it were blown glass from Murano. Shibuya vases have a pierced lid that can transform them into table accessories and not just decorative objects. Beyond their multi-functional aspect, the unique aspect of this project is the fact that the vases have two colored bands with no interruption in the material's surface, guaranteeing perfect water tightness. Color is the key player in this project: its intensity and depth, combined with the full-bodied plastic, makes this object especially precious, even though it is made industrially and sold at an industrial price. Manufactured by Kartell.

Christophe Pillet

Christophe Pillet (born 1959 in Montargis, France) graduated in 1985 from the Academy of Decorative Arts, Nice, France, and then completed a post-graduate course in Milan at the Domus Academy. He subsequently worked in Milan with Martine Bedin before moving to Paris, where he worked with Philippe Starck from 1988 to 1993. Over the course of his career, he has designed for a number of top brands, including Cappellini, Driade, Kartell, L'Oreal, Moroso, and Shiseido. His products range from architecture and interior design to home furnishings designs such as chairs and vases. Christophe Pillet makes a point of not limiting himself to a single style, yet rather experiments with a variety of aesthetics. In an interview with Azure Magazine, he said that “In my opinion, it's not important to have a style; it's more important to do things 'with' style. Being too coherent in your work can get a little dry.”
