HJERTEVASER, Sidse Werner (Holmegaard, 1971)

WERNER-HJERTEVAS-A

I absolutely love this vase! I first saw it in the Taschen 70′s Decorative Arts book (and wished I had one at once) and years later I found it in a Swedish shop.

It was designed by Sidse Werner in 1971 -according to the label, mine’s made in 1972- and it was her first design for Homegaard. It was made in three sizes (22, 16 and 11 cm. – this is the 22 cm. tall) and four colours: yellow, brown, white and clear. It clearly follows the style of the SAVOY vase by Alvar Aalto, but it really has the unique looks of the 1970s.
