Imperfection = more

big1|Nice Indaba quote by Marcel Wanders: ‘Imperfection gives life to things’. Unfortunately Wander’s designs are quite slick. Other Indaba speaker Frank Tjepkema overruled Wanders with his Shock Proof Egg Vase. Tjep filled Wanders’ porcelain Egg Vase with a special rubber coating. When smashed, the cracks form a new superimposed decorative pattern. It is new archeology. And a memorable souvenir after a good fight. The same technique is applied to Heartbreak, also designed by Tjep. The cracks in the heart are symbol of imperfection.
