Meme: the vases inspired by Soviet brutalism

18 January 2018

St Petersburg designer Katia Tolstykh combines architecture and interior design to create unique, multi-disciplinary pieces.

Her latest collection, Meme, take inspiration from the city’s brutalist sculptures and street furniture.

Made using unglazed ceramic, the vases work with a delicate balance of geometrical shapes. Rough forms are combined with gentle colours to create a playful feel, where shapes complement each other rather than fight for dominance.
