„By taking a standard glass tube and twisting it until it reaches a point of complete lock, which results in two parts divided by a tight separation. Giving it a function, produced using a simple and efficient production process that does not require any additional material.
With its asymmetrical twisting point, the vase can be turned upside down to hold tealights or smaller flowers, providing a completely different appearance.“
words from the jury
"I see Twirl as a design that is both strong and simple. it makes obvious and explicit references to HIDN, fullfilling the task of adding functionality to a product in a perfect, clever and simple way. In addition, the presentation material is convincing, clear and easy to understand. It explains your thoughts and processes very well."
"The application of the HIDN concept in this product is outstanding, resulting in a dynamic and pure design. despite recquiring little effort, the outcome is great and original. I believe twirl works best when glass is used and I am curious and interested in experimenting with other shapes and dimensions within the same concept."
"There is no such thing as a design that is so simple that the name alone is enough to describe it. The vase induces an "aha" moment in a genuine and authentic way. In my opinion, this is the kind of reaction that one should aim for in a design that is both simple and honest."
"Twirl is such a simple, bright concept. It showcases the HIDN approach to design in a very comprehensible way, which I find very interesting. This design effectively demonstrates how functionality can be added using existing materials, by capitalising on their unique properties. I especially like the fact that the design and process encourage and allow you to experiment with different materials and forms."
"I love how the Twirl vase appears both industrial and handmade at the same time. the design is elegant, original and it is a brilliant example of how to work with precycling. Twirl introduces a new way of producing a vase in a realistic manner. Thank you for convicting us with such great prototypes and for your investigations of different materials during the design process."
