India 2 is a Stacking Vessel, it combines several materials and makers in a unique object. Since 2013, the India collection has proven one of our most successful collections at Utopia & utility.
Alike the other collections of Stacking Vessels, this piece stands as a sculpture when stacked, and becomes functional once unstacked, the three containers acting as independent bowls and vases.
Handmade in Europe, by individual craftsmen: handblown glass (Czech Republic), handspun metal (England), hand turned wood (Finland).
The materials then come to our warehouse in North Germany where they are fitted and assembled.
Craft Challenge: as the first collection combining glass and metal, the India vessels have undergone a shape transformation resulting in the perfect balance of archaic and contemporary.

Utopia & Utility is a journey filled with joy and beauty, from the process to the finished object.
The studio was founded in 2012 by Finnish-German designer Pia Wüstenberg.
Our story is all about crafts: we collaborate with specialised workshops all around Europe to make each one of the materials that compose the final piece.
For 8 years now, the Stacking Vessels and other collectibles from u&u have made their way all around the world to prestigious boutiques and design exhibitions.
Handmade in Europe, by people:
Everything we do is shaped by the hands of a maker. Glass blowers, carpenters, ceramicist, metal spinners, etc… we find the talent that is needed in small, specialised European workshops.
A u&u product travels through many hands before it reaches our warehouse in Germany. Things need to fit together precisely and each craftsman secures that they do just that.
Our materials & their origins:
Glass - England, Czech Republic
Ceramic - Germany, Austria, Scotland
Wood - Finland, Germany
Metal - England
