Vega 175 by Isaac Piñeiro
The Vega 175 collection from the product designer Isaac Piñeiro stood out as the first of the designer collaborations which the Seville firm initiated in a new stage in its trajectory. The range consists of jugs, containers on trays, candlestick holders and clothes hooks all with distinctive rounded lines which together with the name, give a nod to the forms of the bottle kilns, an innovation that the firm’s founder, Charles Pickman, brought to Seville from England. The homage to La Cartuja de Sevilla classics does not stop there, however, given that the collection rescues a spectrum of products and decoration techniques which had fallen into decades of disuse. However, Vega 175 does not live in the past but is a contemporary collection which utilises current technology such as 3D printing, to develop its designs.
