Designed by Zaha Hadid in 2005, the Alessi Crevasse. In the design of this vase Hadid was inspired by the shapes of a deep crack in the thick ice of a glacier, known as a Crevasse. The vase was shaped entirely by hand which makes it absolutely one-of-a-kind. This makes the Crevasse a perfect example of Hadid’s explorational style towards complex fluid geometries and usage of cutting-edge techniques that demand extreme artisanal attention.
The vase is in new and unused condition. Delivered with original packaging and manuals.
