With SILEX, Serax returns to the discipline it started out with over thirty years ago: glassware for flowers. While the brand has clearly evolved since then, it is very pleased to be able to return to those roots with Sylvain Willenz.
For Sylvain Willenz, the design of the SILEX vases was an important study in form. When you look at the vases from above, they are not really cylinders, nor are they squares. The faceted corners are in stark contrast to the curves of the glass. “Not an easy shape to make in glass,” says Willenz. “It takes a lot of lung power to get the sufficient amount of glass up against those faceted corners. This is an additional difficulty you don’t face with round shapes.
