Babilus: Organically Textured Vases Designed to Resemble Ancient City Skylines

Babilus is a collection of vases made by Tel Aviv designer Nir Meiri.  The shapes of the vases were designed to resemble architecture found in ancient cities such as alters and temples, and the name Babilus is used in reference to the age-old city of Babylon. Each form is made from several layers of materials staked in various combinations. When viewed together, the collection simulates an antique city skyline, however each vase was also designed to stand alone with the intent of igniting the imagination.
