3D Printed vases by Libero Rutilo

January 25th, 2017 by retail design blog

Giving a new sense of purpose to otherwise unused plastic water bottles, Italian designer Libero Rutilo blends the trends of upcycling and 3D Printing for this series of flower vases. Designed for half liter PET water and soft drink bottles, the collection includes four different pattern styles that can be easily screwed into the cap. The 3D printed structure dresses the container and conceals it beneath an aesthetically-pleasing geometric mesh. Rutilo’s 3D printed vases can be easily placed on top of a water bottle and fastened to the cap, creating new objects from old.

Each style generates a different aesthetic approach: “spider vase+ is the most organic of the pieces and bears a biomorphic pattern; “sinuous vase” has undulating curves that form a wavy pattern; “lace vase” has a crochet-inspired motif; and “knitted vase” is emphasized by extraordinarily fine detail. “Of course, you will not clean the planet by recycling just one bottle,” Rutilo says, “but if you have a chance to reuse one and turn it into a design object, it can be a first step towards an environmentally friendly lifestyle.”
