Fusion by Ferreol Babin is a collection of stone vases distinctive for all black look, characterized by bold metal pipes which pierce through the jagged stone base, creating a visual illusion that makes the vase appear strange and ethereal.
First conceived in 2015, the Fusion vase II is a new design modification of its predecessor. Just like the earlier version, this one also combines raw and natural elements that look like gradually fading into the man-made world, except the number of included pipes.
The volcanic rock-esque base functions like a supporting structure for metal pipes that can hold flowers. It is a one-of-a-kind decorative object that features sculptural gestures, making it unique in every detail, mixing archaism and technology and dissolving the boundaries between industrial rigor and mineral irregularity.
Babin designed the Fusion vase to portray confrontation between nature the man-made objects in a lively manner. Its black mineral base appears gradually spreading its particles all over the vase.
It’s a perfect gift for people having a deep love for the earth. A few months ago, Mexican design studio Ewe also created a limited edition Humo table featuring a volcanic rock base that bears a close resemblance to Fusion’s jagged stone base.
