A vase with feminine features, a combination of beauty, perfection and harmony of the statuesque body represented in Greek art, and the graceful silhouette of the contemporary female body. B-fora ironically shows what has been hidden for centuries beneath the amphora’s robes, revealing generously and without veil the B-side of the traditional A-mphora.
The creation of these original and unconventional pieces stems from the idea of redesigning the original contour lines that belong to the classic Greek amphora, creating a modern piece that fits perfectly into the contemporary vision. Unique pieces able to reconnect us with ourselves: B-fora is a vase that conveys feelings, a vase that urges us to act, a vase that wants to create connection, serenity and peace with your body. A vase that acts as a declaration of intent, a manifesto to freedom.
An iconic piece reinterpreted in a contemporary and ironic way, winner of the “A’ Design Award 2021”.
B-fora is also made to order in custom sizes and finishes for special projects.
Reimagining everyday objects with an ironic and provocative twist is the bread and butter of the artistic duo behind IAMMI.
Portuguese designer Nicolau dos Santos and French Italian art director Stephanie Blanchard joined forces to develop unconventional pieces that blur the line between classic and contemporary, experimenting with different techniques and materials.
The continuous search for new, bizarre combinations is the essence with which the duo coins each work, performance or installation.Their process stems from intuition, deep listening, and results in a touching experience that captures people’s emotions, prompting to act.
