Trippy is a large-scale vase, produced with a combination of glassblowing techniques. The vase with an impressive height of 60cm is part of Massproductions’ collection The Little Things. The name Trippy is based on the transition from the normal to the surreal. A bit like an evening where things start predictably and later become more and more odd, explains Massproductions’ design manager Chris Martin. Trippy’s cone-shaped base is produced in a mould while the expressive top section is created separately by free blowing, making each vase unique.
The Little Things is a collection of smaller furniture pieces and accessories designed by the company’s design director Chris Martin. In The Little Things, Chris Martin gave special attention to smaller objects that we encounter in our everyday lives and perhaps take for granted. The collection was designed with the aim of creating objects with the ability to gild everyday life.
“I wanted to change the scale of the things I normally design. It turned out that it is a similar process as when I design furniture, it is the same struggle, even for smaller objects. But the reward is worth it, because as the saying goes, it’s the little things that make a big difference,” says Chris Martin.
