You either love it or hate it when well-known designers start collaborating with giants like IKEA. Well Hella Jongerius was brave enough to accept the invitation and did a marvellous job combining design, craft and commercial manufacturing in a product.

Yes, I am talking about the PS Jonsvase that made its debut in 2005 and still is in production.
