THE LYNGBY VASE BLACK & OPAL

The Lyngbyvase has become one of the most iconic designs from Lyngby Porcelæn. Over the past 10 years flea markets have been swiped clean of the original examples and the new productions have been extremely popular.

When it was originally designed the Lyngbyvase was in stark contrast to the classical porcelain traditions. Up until the 1920's the traditions required lots of painting, ornaments, glazing technique and details – focusing more on the decoration of the porcelain rather than the porcelain shape it self. The Lyngbyvase challenged this assumption – heavily influenced by the functional Bauhaus movement in Germany. The shape itself is enough. No extra ornaments or decorations needed.

When the Lyngbyvase was released in the late 30´s it had a very modern and unique aesthetic. The oblong, fluted shapes and elegant simplicity was something new. Too new for many, so it is also possible (if you're extremely lucky) to find original Lyngbyvases with decorations of flowers and a wide range of glazing techniques. But the thought of simplicity, form and function slowly grew within Lyngby Porcelæn, and the world in general, although it wasn't until the 1950's that it was more commonly accepted – and desired.

Lyngby Porcelæn started the reproduction of the Lyngbyvase in 2012 and since then, the vase family has grown in colours, sizes, and material choices. As a part of the SS16-collection two new colours will join the glass vases – the beautiful dark Black and the stunning White opal.

Always remember to look at the bottom of a Lyngbyvase before you buy it. The original vase from Porcelænsfabrikken Danmark – Lyngby Porcelæn has the familiar, hand-printed monogram from 1961.
