The starting point for the Vieno Collection is a preform that in its full
size is the size of the Vieno bottle. By cutting the preform at different
points five different products are created. This method minimizes waste.
Moreover, if there is a flaw in some part of the preform’s glass mass,
flawless parts of the preform can still be used in products.
In her previous work, Katriina has combined delicate and shiny glass
with matte wood. Different materials complement one another in
her products. In Vieno bottle, the natural character of these two
soulful materials emerges. The bottle is designed together with Antrei
Hartikainen, and it is at once strong, fragile, delicate and beautiful.
