Selected products from the Vij5 SHOP
The tray is produced by a combination of dedicated handwork and an industrial finishing process. The aluminium is sanded by hand in different directions to create a balanced graphical pattern. On some parts the directions of the ‘fields’ intersect. After the sanding the tray is given its shape and is being anodised to give it a strong top layer, using a beautiful champagne colour finish. We love the fact that the tray looks different from every angle, where the light reflects differently in the grains of the sanded surfaces.

Pigments & Porcelain
Pigments & Porcelain is a research about the flowing of colours through liquid porcelain, resulting in a series of handmade and unique objects. The pattern might be colourful or subtle, very smooth or strongly present; it always reveals the blending of the coloured porcelain and the movements that has been made.

Tap Water Carafe
The shape of her carafes betrays the origins of the Dutch water. The tall bottle with the long neck refers to water from deep underground; the low, stout bottle is the ideal shape for collecting surface water; the third can be filled with dune water.
The stopper clearly displays the place where the contents were drawn: from the tap, naturally!
The Trestle Table is an elegant, flexible table where the table top and the frame are disconnected from each other. The base of the table consists of lightweight aluminium trestles which are stackable and very stable due to careful design. The trestles carry the table top with a layer of cork in between providing sufficient grip.
The table top has been finished with a Forbo Desktop layer; a natural surfacing material made from sustainable raw materials, renowned for its elegance and durability.
