Capase Floor Vases
Lecce stone floor vases
The design idea is based on the ancient Capase from Salento, which were used to contain various items, but totally redesigned according to a more contemporary stylistic logic.
Produced by Pimar, a historic company based in the province of Lecce and specialised in stone work – from façades and architectural components to design products – the vases are made of Lecce stone hollowed out and turned on a lathe.
So, from a production point of view, these products are made according to the logic of a “diversified series”, that is, a handcrafted production where the pieces are never perfectly the same, but the manual skill of man always intervenes.
Vertical metal elements, treated with a special metameric varnish, have been inserted to support the stone part in order to have 3 different heights.
