Decorative architectural elements

The Once Upon a Time collection of glass vases is composed of pieces in different sizes, created from the recording of Guto Requena’s grandmother retelling the fables from his childhood. These stories were captured on a mobile phone in 2011 and used as the basis for the computer models of the vases. The forms generated by the interpretation of the audio files are the soul of these works, which express through their curves the narrative drama of the fables. The vases were manufactured by glass blowing artisans using recycled material. For Mint exhibition Guto developed a special edition in purple colour.

 

The collection reflects the interests of the Estudio Guto Requena in the design process, in designs inspired by emotional memory, in the rich Brazilian culture and history, and an appreciation for the artisanal. The objects represent a form of investigation of the creative process in design using the possibilities offered by new digital technologies and concepts arising from Digitalculture. Once Upon a Time Collection was developed upon invitation of Guardin Brazil.
