Big Bloom // Charlie Guda for The Cottage Industry


Dutch designer Charlie Guda wanted to pay hommage to Augustin-Jean Fresnel – the man responsible for creation of the thinner and lighter lens which we aptly call the ‘fresnel lens’ today. The idea dates back to the seventeenth century and was then employed to reduce the bulk of glass that was then necessary for the manufacture of the lenses in a lighthouse. Since then it has been used widely in car headlights, overhead projectors, reading aids and hand held magnifying glasses.

The all new transparent Big Bloom vase will greatly magnify any flower allowing you to see the fine intricacies of the flower in much greater detail. Whether it’s a rose you received from your loved one or a flower plucked from your garden… this vase knows how to make the best of it.
