Ettore Sottsass

I found this image online a while back on a design blog and have been lusting over these objects ever since. I thought they were newly produced candle sticks, but no, I've discovered that they're actually enameled copper vases on a wooden base, designed by Ettore Sottsass in 1958 for Vitra. Amazing how fifty years down the track they look so fresh and modern.
