With its vertical lines and unique shape, the idea for the Ridge Vase was sparked by a doorway in Paris that Studio Kaksikko (Salla Luhtasela and Wesley Walters) discovered while travelling through different cities with a vase in mind, searching for details that had an architectural feel. Handmade in terracotta, the vase presents a new way to hold flowers through its sculptural expression along with an artful character when not in use.
With references to its name, Ridge Vase applies an added functionality through its refined dent, allowing for flowers to stand upright while also working as a subtle handle when moving the vase from one room to another. The vase comes in two sizes, bringing a distinct touch to any room. Place the Ridge Vase in a windowsill, on the floor or side table for a characterful design object that is unique in both its function and aesthetic.

Studio Kaksikko is a Helsinki-based design studio that specializes in ceramic tableware and wooden furniture, founded by Salla Luhtasela and Wesley Walters.
The duo shares an interest in functional, understated forms that highlight each material’s tactile qualities, as well as in the production process itself. They met while studying at Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture and have collaborated on a broad range of professional projects under the studio name Kaksikko.
They work with their hands from an early stage in the designing process and use their familiarity with wood and ceramics to pay attention to detail and practicality. The duo shares a desire to design and make things that people will use until they wear out.
