The Échasse Collection by Theresa Rand for Menu revives the classic elegance of glass vases and bowls with a modern twist. Taking inspiration from the French word for “stilts” – “échasse” – the Collection features slender, stilt-like legs that daintily suspend the glass forms, conveying a sense of lightness with stability.
The Échasse Vase – the first piece in the Collection – was inspired by laboratory test tubes and is available in three sizes with either smoked glass and brushed brass legs or clear glass and bronzed brass legs. Each variation offers unique gradients of glass and complementary clean lines of the legs to create a striking contrast.
For a classic look, the smallest vase is ideal for more compact spaces. These pieces are far more than just vases, however; allowing for endless possibilities of styling and experimentation, they can be displayed alone or together, filled or unfilled to bring a touch of daring grace to any modern, minimalist space.
