Shaky ground

The furniture collection with the brand Enzyma (, launched in November  2011, has gained wide and important feedback. After having established the identity of the brand through a line of furnishings with a bold and sophisticated image, Gianluca Sgalippa, founder of Enzyma, extends the range of types o fproposals to the sphere of accessories and complements.

The ceramic vase Shaky, the first element of this new approach, was born as a provocative and surreal object. It is an abstract presence, characterized by a clear geometry, placing it outside of time and aspecific space.

A cylindrical volume, elongated, bends and, describing a semicircle, draws a Uturn. But one of the two legs does not touch the ground plane: in addition to interrupting a perfect geometry, this asymmetry generates a feeling of instability.

Not surprisingly, in English “shaky” describes a person having difficulty walking or standing. The balance of the vase is guaranteed by a metallic weight placed on the bottom of the other leg. The flowers are inserted into the slot at the top of the curve and can be housed either in one or the other leg or in both.
