CH Omakase 2017: Fferrone Design Albers Vase + Rare Presenter Set

Two exclusive homeware items from one of our favorite Chicago-based designers

Color is a big influence on this year’s Omakase collection. With that in mind, we asked Chicago-based multidisciplinary designer Felicia Ferrone, a longtime CH collaborator and founder of Fferrone Design (note that her last name has one F, the brand name has two Fs), to create something colorful and transformative. The result was a two-piece vase, which creates a third color where the pieces nest. The item calls to mind Josef Albers and his study on the interaction of colors. Further, borosilicate is notoriously difficult to color, and each piece is hand formed so each is unique. While these were produced in an edition of 25, Ferrone produced another, even more exclusive homeware. We first commissioned the designer to create a presenter a few years ago. The more we’ve used it the more we love it, and wanted to revisit it in a darker take. As a second Omakase contribution, this new edition features a blackened presenter along with a set of eight tumblers. They’re a stylish way to entertain, that’s for certain.

CH Omakase is a collection of never seen before, pre-release and collaboratively designed gifts delivered in time for a holiday surprise. You can see our collection from this past season here.
