Decoration and design lovers will immediately fall in love with “Canopie”, a series of doll-like porcelain vases designed by Elena Cutolo for Seletti. The Italian cult label is known for its unusual product designs and design classics. The shape of the vases is based on the idea of a meeting between friends with different cultural backgrounds: Pepa from America, Lula from Oceania, Rosio from Africa, Izumi from Asia and Zoé from Europe. The respective colors, motifs, facial expressions and hairstyles give each vase its very own, unmistakable personality. As soon as the flowers have wilted, it is sufficient to simply place the head-shaped lid on the body of the vase. The porcelain figures offer enough space inside to safely store various little things or to hide them from prying eyes.
