The shape of the Nuage vases made its first appearance in the oeuvre of Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec in 2002. Reminiscent of a cloud, it was originally produced as a plastic shelf module that can be grouped into clusters or large-scale confi gurations. Eight tubular cavities pierce the fl at surfaces of the modular element while also defi ning the form‘s outer contours. Over the years, the Bouroullec brothers have varied this shape and repeatedly incorporated it in their graphic work. For the Nuage vase, the designers executed the cloud motif in extruded aluminium.

profi les of varying lengths. The cavities in the basic form are now positioned upright, dividing the vase into eight individual tubes that can be used for the artful arrangement of fl owers and grasses. The undulating surfaces, with an anodised fi nish in various colours, produce an attractive interplay of light and shadow. Thanks to their precise outer contours, the vases can be fi tted together to create entire ‚cloud formations‘.
