Frankfurt-based designer Jonathan Radetz has created a collection of vases, whose form was dictated by the seismograph recordings of two earthquakes.

The earthquakes he based his designs on were the 6.0 earthquake in Italy in 2012, and the 6.3 earthquake in New Zealand in 2011.

 

In the graph below, you can see how the shape of the vases was taken from the lines on the recording.

Once each vase was designed, they were then produced from porcelain using molds in a studio in Bavaria, Germany.

Jonathan Radetz worked together with Alexander Esslinger, owner and CEO of dua, to make the vases available to the market.
