RGB Vases By Oscar Diaz 1

Oscar Diaz’s RGB Vases are based on a simple principle: if you combine two or more colors, you will get another color. The RGB vases combine the excellence of a process like glass blowing, refined through more than two thousand years, with references to the contemporary culture, were screens are extremely common, and its colors, based on the RGB color system. In this case, the careful combination of red, green and blue vases creates the specific purple color (P242). When the three vases are nested, the light passes through, and mixes the three colors so that the purple becomes evident. A computer is used to calculate the exact amount of color that each vase must have in order to achieve the desired color. Originally designed for a fundraising auction sponsored by Veuve Clicquot champagne, the work will now be exhibited as part of “Eyes on Spanish Design.” It’ll appear at the 100% Design during September’s London Design Festival.
