Dutch designer Lex Pott brings a special kind of polish to his True Colours series of vases for &Tradition. Each of the cylinder shapes is made from a different metal—copper, steel, brass or aluminum—and juxtaposes bands of both an oxidized and a highly polished finish. A plastic container within each tube can hold water for use as a flower vase. The contrast of textures and tonal variances between the organic rawness and the lustrous patina reveals the essential qualities of each metal. And since the oxidation is a natural process, each vase is unique in its color variations.
