New Hydro Glass Vase by Sofie Østerby

With the launch of the aesthetic Hydro vase in oxidised sand-cast brass and the exclusive Locus bowl in travertine in 2020, the Danish designer Sofie Østerby has left her distinctive mark on Fredericia’s Complement design collection. Now the Hydro series is being expanded with two variants in mouth-blown glass.

With Hydro, Østerby references classic ceramic vases and ancient Greek vessels. Made from mouthblown crystalline glass using traditional techniques by skilled craftspeople, the shape still resembles traditional iconic pottery in a new material that brings a modern take on the traditional vessel.

It is essential to designer Sofie Østerby that what we surround ourselves with has a long shelf life. Timelessness, texture, and material nature are all guiding principles in Østerby’s work.

The products are created from a ‘hands-on’ method, emphasising material sources, connectedness, memories, history, and narration. Østerby incorporates a base anchored in the cultural history and heritage and works with a clear aesthetics idiom. The works accommodate both a strict geometry and a structured rawness. They appear timeless, as objects created centuries ago and in the future simultaneously.
