Designer Theresa Rand
Reimagining the classic elegance of glass vases and bowls, the Échasse Collection brings a minimalist silhouette with distinguished, playful edge to modern and traditional spaces. Theresa Rand’s playful concept beautifully interprets the word “échasse”: French for “stilts”. The slender, stilt-like supporting legs delicately suspend the glass forms, creating a sense of lightness while ensuring stability.
The Échasse Vase—The first piece in the now-iconic Collection was inspired by laboratory test tubes. The drop-shaped form is as elegant when holding flowers on a desk, living room floor, or nightstand as it is when left unfilled. The smoked glass version with brushed brass legs is available in three sizes. The unique colour gradients of the glass give the design depth and contrast against the legs’ clean lines. The smallest vase is now available with clear glass and bronzed brass legs; a classic pairing to complement any interior palette, in a size ideal for more compact spaces.
Its expression ethereal, its design elevated in every sense, the Échasse Collection offers infinite possibilities for experimentation, as its test tube origins suggest. Alone or together, filled with favorite flowers, fruits and objects or displayed alone as sculptural focal points, these pieces enliven modern spaces with equal parts daring and grace.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Studio Theresa Rand is based in Copenhagen and is working on furniture and interior design related projects. The focus of the studio's work is on the use of natural, authentic and lasting materials and the way in which they are combined. Creating functional but poetic furniture with a story to tell, as well as spaces with a warm atmosphere for the people living and being in them. Theresa’s thinking is very intuitive – "Although functionality is very important, too, the atmosphere, which furniture and objects create and the impact, which they have on a space and on people using this space is crucial." Originally, Theresa Rand studied languages at the University of Cologne and graduated in 2005. Her later career was followed by architecture studies at the Peter Behrens School of Architecture in Düsseldorf, in Germany. Afterwards, Theresa Rand graduated with a concentration in a Master of Arts in Architecture & Furniture Design at the Royal Academy of Arts, in Denmark. Alongside her studies, Theresa Rand worked as freelance with namely design offices, like Norm Architects or Space Copenhagen. That was when her first introductory pieces for Audo Copenhagen were sketched.
