´Soap Bubble´ vase by Per Lutken

We always endevour to show beautiful mid-century glass from Scandinavia,  Italy,    Czechoslovakia and beyond.

This beautiful ´Soap bubble´ vase created by Per Lutken for  Danish glass factory Holmegaard is one such example.

Per Lutken became chief designer and art director at Holmegaard in 1946, but it was only after visiting the Milan Triennale in 1954 that Lutken pioneered a new modernist design aesthetic. He introduced more free flowing forms in lighter colours such as grey, bronze, green and blue. The resulting designs epitomized the organic shapes that came to be associated with Scandinavian design during the post war years.

The soft undulating forms of his designs reflect an empathy with the material being used and also characterize the Scandinavian idea of ´living glass´.

We currently have a nice little collection of Per Lutken dating from the mid 1950`s to early 1960`s in characteristic organic forms and colours.

Each piece is signed in diamond point on the base.
