Lilian van Daal designed her Pattern Vase in 2012 during her master in Industrial Design at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.
Lilian: “The vase was created as a relational gift for the Supreme Court of the Netherlands. It is based on the judicial division of the Netherlands. The country is divided into 10 districts. I highlighted the district where the Supreme Court of the Netherlands belongs to, the district of The Hague. From the map of the district I created a pattern. Out of this pattern I designed the vase, inspired by tulip vases and cabinet sets.”
“These ceramic objects were seen as status symbol in the past. The tulip vase is a typical Dutch product. Tulip vases and cabinet sets were showpieces for the family – just like this contemporary Dutch vase.”
