fahz • It’s your face in a vase!

DDR, 2015

Fahz began as an overly ambitious Mother’s Day gift. Rather than designing a single vase, Nicholas Desbiens decided to design a generative vase design system. Drawing from his background as an architect and computational designer, Nick utilized customized software (Rhino, Grasshopper, Python, Processing, etc.) to produce a detailed parametric model. The original idea was to update the file with new profiles once a year (children grow), thereby solving the Mother’s Day gift conundrum once and for all. It was only when friends and family began to ask how they could get their own vase that the project expanded. fahz was officially launched with a successful Kickstarter campaign in January 2015.
