The PC vase by 1616 / arita japan is adorned with a lovely blue stripe motif as well as two black rings around the centre of the vase. The ceramic vase is ideal for long-stemmed flowers like a bouquet of roses or carnations.

Named after its designer Pierre Charpin, the PC collection is based on the connection between form and decoration: often the motif or pattern is designed after the dishware, but PC’s shapes and decorations were designed together, simultaneously. This approach has resulted in a tableware collection that manages to look fresh and modern – yet somehow nostalgic at the same time. As a reference to the positioning of the patterns, the collection’s nickname is Outline.

Pierre Charpin

Pierre Charpin (b. 1962) is a French designer living and working in Paris. Trained as an artist, Charpin began his work with furniture and object design in the early 1990s, but the artistic background is still visible in his approach to design and in the skillful combinations of form and colour. Besides designing simple and functionalist objects, Charpin also wants to create feelings and sensations with his designs. Charpin’s work has been included in exhibitions and collections around the world, and he was awarded as the Designer of the Year 2017 at Maison & Objet fair.
