Combine by Elena Salmistraro
The minimalist range called Combine is a series of vessels created by Milan-based designer Elena Salmistraro. The vase is described as a game, as the three components can be rearranged to fit together in different ways.
The elegant combination of delicate glass and heavy marble equally showcases the beautiful quality and contrast of each material. The visual poetics of the two coming together represent the balance being produced.
Although Combine was created as an ‘everyday object,’ the use of marble and glass give it a sense of luxury. The object promotes the idea of hierarchy within materials, as we traditionally associate them with ideas of opulence.
