Gaia and Gino and Swarovski Elements - Cut  vases designed by defne Koz. 

Born in Ankara, Turkey, and based in Chicago, internationally respected Defne Koz combined her Turkish roots with Italian sensibilities in an exquisitely sensual collection of mouth-blown, silvered glass ‘Mineral Flowers’ vases. These voluptuously curved, smoothly tactile vessels feature crystalline ‘flowers’ made from glinting Crystal Rocks by Swarovski Elements that catch and refract the light. 


Gaia and Gino and Swarovski Elements - Star Vessels designed by David Adjaye. Top British architect David Adjaye’s Star collection of three vases plus a centerpiece represented his first-ever product design. Consisting of paired triangles handmade from perfectly smooth copper lined with black crystals that subtly catch the light from within, they carry his unmistakable architectural signature.
