This vase-sculpture presented a real challenge for Alessi's engineers: using his trademark iconic language, Ron Arad developed the idea of a "blister" container by welding together two sheets of drawn steel, resulting in a vase that is as fun to look at as it is difficult to make.

Ron was born in Tel Aviv in 1951, he studied at the Jerusalem Academy of Art and at the Architectural Association of London where Bernard Tschumi was his teacher and Nigel Coates and Zaha Hadid his colleagues. He lives and works in London where he teaches at The Royal College of Art. Putting architecture to one side for a while, although he has in fact recently returned to that discipline, Ron turned his attention to design and began working with several Italian companies. He has created some world-famed pieces and is a true virtuoso as can been seen in works like his performance: Ron is always searching for new unconventional solutions for common objects and experimenting with new technologies and materials in innovative forms.
