Cool, white glazed porcelain doesn't look predicable in the Fast Vase ($125) by Rosenthal Studio Line. We've seen enough tea cups and standard shapes for a lifetime, so this speedy shape really shakes things up. Give your table instant movement... Woosh.
It's clear to us that this vase couldn't exist without Futurism, an Anti-Romantic art movement founded in Italy in 1909. Specifically, it reminds us of the in-motion sculpture, Unique Forms of Continuity in Space by Umberto Boccioni. Futurism embraced the tech breakthroughs of the early 20th century, and expressed a new world order with dynamic art that glorified speed and movement. For tons of great pictures check Futurism e-visited; to really get into the thick of it, read the Futurist Manifestos.
