Nomen est omen: „aNoi“ is the name Italian Designer gave his marble vase. The name is a pun on the „Tower of Hanoi“ puzzle, in which a number of disks of different sizes have to be repositioned on three rods in a certain order.
The function of the vase, i.e. leak-proof property, is guaranteed by means of a stainless steel insert. Marble rings measuring 2 or 4 cm are stacked one on top of the other. aNoi is produced as a limited edition of only 12.
Note the top ring which is fastened to the insert by means of a thread-connection ensuring that the rings are not misplaced.
We add: Ratti has produced a timeless vase for the Facebook-age: the rings can be rearranged day for day adding a daily incentive to post a selfie with the vase.
