Ancienne Key Vase

by Atelier Polyhedre


The Ancienne Key Vase is a beautifully imaginative work of art designed and hand-crafted by Baptiste Ymonet & Vincent Jousseaume for Atelier Polyhedre. The Ancienne Key Vase shows the outline shape of a key in the space between the handle and the body of the vase in an ingenious display of negative space design. The Ancienne Key Vase can be used as a vase or a carafe. It also works beautifully as a decorative object, making a design statement in both residential and commercial spaces, especially as part of contemporary design schemes.

The Ancienne Key Vase is available in two versions: red earthenware with a transparent enamel inside or white earthenware with a white enamel inside and outside. Please make your selection in the Version option above.

The Ancienne Key Vase is part of the Key Vases Collection from Atelier Polyhedre, a series of vases which cleverly disguises the outline of a key in the space between the handle and body.
