RGB Vases (P-242)

The RGB vases combine the excellence of a process like glass blowing, refined through more than two thousand years, with references to the contemporary culture, were screens are extremely common, and its colours, based on the RGB colour system.

The vase works as a three dimensional pixel were the RGB colours overlap to create a specific colour which appears only once the vases are nested.

Each vase is made using the values of red, green and blue that make up the specific purple colour (P242). When the three vases are nested, the light passes through, and mixes the three colours so that the purple becomes evident.

A computer is used to calculate the exact amount of pigment that each vase must have in order to achieve the desired colour.
