Design Miami/ Basel 2018

Holland is famous for its Delftware, also known as Delft Blue, which has been made in the Netherlands for centuries. This thin earthenware developed in part as a cheaper alternative to expensive Chinese porcelain that was imported beginning in the early seventeenth century. Olivier van Herpt, a young designer from Holland, graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven. He developed these 3D printed porcelain vases exclusively for Galerie VIVID at Design Miami/ Basel. With these vases he takes the Chinese and Dutch tradition of producing porcelain and Delftware one step further.
