The Ashes_Mid vase is made out of rubber.
A novel type of materiality was developed through combining the newest production techniques with handcraft.
The process utilises 3D printing, rubber rotation casting and freehand modelling to produce a flowing, matte surface overlayed with a sparkling pattern of jewel-like dots.
Flowers and fruit are symbols of beauty, youth and pleasure. Simultaneously, in their decay they become reminders of life’s brevity and the inevitability of death.
The expressive power of withering was commonly used to represent the idea of vanitas in art, particularly in Flemish painting.
Ashes is a series of rubber vases which reinterprets this concept for the context of the modern household, acknowledging both beauty and transience of life.

“Revealing the relationships between people and objects is the aim of our approach. It allows us to see ourselves as part of a bigger picture – a complex system – we belong to and live in.” (Severin)
“We create narrative objects which reflect about past and present while opening up to alternative futures. ” (Neu-Rinaudo)
Studio B Severin explores culture and society by re-designing objects and materials.
The studio is based in Berlin and run by the French-German duo Birgit Severin and Guillaume Neu-Rinaudo.
Objects are extensions of our body and mind, making this connection explicit is the aim of “studio b severin”s design approach. Based on research, taking psychological, anthropological, and philosophical questions into account, the outcomes are objects which through their function and aesthetic transmit their implicit message.
Their work has been shown nationally and internationally at prestigious museums, biennials, and fairs. The studio collaborates with curators, galleries, and companies while sharing their vision and thoughts workshop and lectures.
