HOLMEGAARD PRIMULA VASE SMOKE, 17,5 CM
The Primula range, consists of beautiful mouth-blown glass vases with a simple, sophisticated design. The oval Primula vase is inspired by the original vase, but has been renewed and restyled in line with today’s fashion. The colour of this oval vase is smoke, adding edge to the ribbed vase. Add twigs or flowers to create a perfect combination for the dinner table that will grace any modern home. The vase measures 17.5 cm, so it can either stand alone or be combined with other Primula vases in the same range.

Jacob E. Bang (1899-1965) was Holmegaard’s first designer and was first employed at the glass factory in the 1920s. He was really an architect, but after working at the glass factory Bang shifted his attentions completely to industrial design.
Jacob E. Bang is known as Denmark’s first industrial designer and the creator of functionalism in Danish glass. His design mantra was ‘beautiful, strong, practical and cheap’, and it was his words that formed the basis for the Holmegaard Glass Factory mission statement: “Every Dane should be given the opportunity to own a Holmegaard glass”.
