Last year at Spazio Rosana Orlandi in Milan, young Eindhoven designers Boaz Cohen & Sayaka Yamamoto of BCXSY presented Coiled – a collection of beaded vases, made in collaboration with South African beadwork project Siyazama.

Coiled

The outcome of a 10-day workshop set up by Swedish collaborative design platform Editions in Craft, the Coiled vases are essentially repurposed PET plastic bottles covered with coiled strands of coloured glass beads.

Coiled is now an ongoing series, with each vase’s shape, colours and patterns being determined by the beading ladies of the Siyazama Project. Read more about Siyazama at the Editions in Craft website.
