A small architectures in Italian prehistoric stone from Matera (Città dei Sassi, UNESCO World Heritage, European Capital of Culture) and blown glass, combine the
elements to create a vase collection inspired by the snails' life cycle. Each of these vases is made up of 2 or 3 pieces, which you will be able to put together yourself. This allows you to keep
the materials separate and make them ready for new uses.

MADE IN ITALY
Cochleae vases collection is inspired by the life cycle of the snails and captures their growth when the invertebrate's body (represented by the curved glass) develops upwards from the embracing shell symbolized by two blocks of calcarenite, a historical stone only found in Matera. The glass and stone components are not glued, and can be disassembled, recycled and reused according to the circular design cycle that inspires Coki's sustainable artistic model.
