Ming is a glass vase designed by Carina Seth-Andersson, available in in either clear or white opaque finishes.
The Marimekko Ming Vase is a hand-blown minimalist vase with a narrow stem to make the most of a small collection of flowers and foliage.
When Anna Teurnell became Creative Director for Marimekko they asked Carina to design a collection of vases and textiles for Spring 2016. The monumental patterns Marimekko is known for was the basis for her inspiration, with the idea to compliment and strengthen, rather than compete with the collection.
Three vases were developed, the largest of the series Urna, a vase in clear glass that lets through light, Ming which is graphic in form and inspired by white Asian porcelain and the smallest vase Flower, produced in clear and pale pink glass. All three vases rest on a base which lift these otherwise robust forms off the surface.
