Limited Edition SKUM Vase

Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG)

About the Design

The SKUM Vase is based on an inflatable art pavilion designed by BIG for the CHART Art Fair. The playful bubble form is originally inspired by the dreamy bouncy castles of childhood. The vase is shaped exactly after a part of the BIG pavilion and scaled down to the size of an object. As the pavilion continues to travel the world from music festivals to art fairs, a small fraction of it can now populate private homes, reincarnated as the SKUM vase.

Limited Edition 2017. The SKUM vase will be shipped beginning March 1st.

Details: 7" h x 5.25" w, Porcelain, Matte White, Designed by BIG

The Design Process

The Designer

Mosss asked Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) to design a small household object inspired by one of their designs. BIG selected their SKUM pavilion design for the exclusive Mosss object.

Drawings

Early early two-dimensional sketches of the vase based on the SKUM pavilion, also designed by BIG Architects.

Three-Dimensional Models

Models were created and rendered. 3D modeling allows designers to see and evaluate all dimensions of the design before diving into physical prototypes.

Physical Prototypes

Here are a few of the many 3D-printed prototypes. We tested various sizes before landing on the current scale.

Materiality

The SKUM vase is made of high-grade porcelain.

Glazing and Firing

The porcelain vase is carefully sanded and finished by hand. The interior is sealed to be water-tight.

The Original SKUM Pavilion
Jakob Lange, Partner at BIG

‘The idea of using a bouncy castle as material came about because one can create any kind of structure with the material...The result is the most beautiful thing you can imagine.’

A playful dialogue and interaction between the pavilion and visitors is fostered; this is emphasized further by the colored LED lights that illuminate the rounded shape during the evenings.
