4690 fioriera (flowerpot vase) | Giotto Stoppino | Kartell, Italy | 1972 | UPDATE

Stoppino 4690 vaseGiotto Stoppino
Kartell, Italy, 1972

An update to my post of February 24, 2009, the flowerpot vase by Giotto Stoppino.

Two flowerpot vases One flowerpot vase could be inverted and attached to form a table, approximately 46 cm in height.  Stoppino is no stranger to multifunctional design and objects that nest and connect, so the dual use of the vase is not surprising.  The only time I’ve seen the vases “tabled” in practice is from this picture (shown left) from a book on Stoppino’s designs.  The seam between vases is visible.

Hi Teddy! Thank you so much for posting your pics. I have wanted to see, and see how, this table was put together for a long time now.
