Introducing the New Wave collection of 80s-inspired vases by Greg Natale

Industrial Design
WATCH: Highlights from the world of architecture and design.

Comprising seductive silhouettes cast by telescopic cylinders and architectural arches, the New Wave collection of decorative vessels by designer Greg Natale plays with forms reminiscent of the past, rebooted for use within contemporary interiors. “I drew from an array of references for this collection. Most significantly, the 1980s interpretation of art deco which was super bold and futuristic,” says Greg, who also referenced the post-modern shapes and colours of Swiss architect Mario Botta, Italian architect Ettore Sottsass and the iconic work of American-German artist Josef Albers. The vases feature a high-shine finish, inspired by the ceramics that found immense popularity in North America during the late 70s and 80s.

Available online and in-store at the Greg Natale flagship in Potts Point, Sydney, the collection is presented in a dynamic palette of colours including classic black and white, vibrant blues and burgundy – as well as pleasing pastels. The vases are at their peak when grouped together, creating spectacular tablescapes at home. “Colour selection was integral to the success of this collection,” Greg says. “I really considered the colour choice and arrived on a mix of bold, block colours – all inspired by my recent interior design projects.” 

Bearing the names ‘Electric Dreams’, ‘Devo’ and ‘Avalon’, it’s difficult to pinpoint a favourite vase from the three key shapes in the line-up. But not for the ever-effervescent Greg: “I really want the ‘Devo’ vase in cobalt which I can see partnering beautifully with my Frank Stella [artwork] in the dining room at home,” he says, pointing out that the range is set to grow and continue delighting collectors. “We have three additional styles to expand the initial New Wave range which will hopefully roll into production later this year.”
