Rob Brandt

Inspired by the familiar plastic water cups, Rob Brandt has been making the ‘crushed cup’ since 1975. The inspiration for his new ‘jail house cup’, (pictured) he explains, came after visiting a hotel that was formerly a prison. “The cup is a fundamental piece of equipment for one of life’s basic necessities and should be cherished for this.”

Mindmade design that is beautiful, multifunctional and lasts a lifetime –epitomised by the Alvar Aalto vases. Vessel also stocks Aino Aalto’s modern classic tumblers and jugs. Designed in the 1930s, these versatile, space-saving designs have stood the test of time.
