Ruutu Vases

Bloesem Living | Ruutu Vases

Bloesem Living | Ruutu Vases

Delicate yet full of character.. this collectible vase collection, Ruutu, is mouth blown by designers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. These vases may look simple in shape, but the hard work that goes behind creating these watercolour-like beauties is what caught our admiration. Beware, this fun fact will amaze you too.. each vase takes seven most skilled craftsmen 24 hours to produce! Indeed, this takes true dedication towards ones' craft to be able to achieve such masterpieces. Apart from being just stand alone pieces of art, the designers also hand the job of the artist over to the users themselves who will be able to create his or her own individual landscape with the different sizes and colours of vases.

Ruutu, which means diamond or square in Finnish, takes a special meaning in this collection. For those who are not familiar with glass-blowing, glass is a material that likes round shapes making it very difficult to achieve precise geometric shapes. So the next time you see a glass vase in strict shapes, take a little moment to appreciate the hard work of the crafters behind them!

Hit the Sack: Tenface Bangkok

Bloesem Living | Hit the Sack: Tenface Bangkok

Continuing on from our post about our 24 hours in Bangkok .. After hearing many rave reviews about Tenface we decided to go ahead and book our accommodations.. we were definitely not disappointed. Friendly staff, clean hotel.. it had a really quirky vibe with hanging decor and animals along the hallways. 

The hotel has a lot of facilities for guests who like to spend their time lounging in the hotel.. you can use the gym, pool, there's even a bar area. It's not a big hotel but it's nice and cosy, perfect for travellers who appreciate design and for people looking for accommodation during a short stay.

24 hours in Bangkok

Bloesem living | Travel: 24 hours in Bangkok

Recently Mei and Zara from the Bloesem Team headed to Bangkok for a super short trip and here's what they got up to.. there's so many things to do and see in Bangkok and so many must-do and must-visit places and things but here's what they got up to with just 24 hours to spare in the beautiful city of Bangkok.

9 AM - Wakey wakey

We spent the night at Tenface hotel. Beautiful interiors, friendly and helpful staff. You could not ask for more. Only thing is that if you plan on walking back to the hotel, it is abit away from the main road and gets pretty dark at night. Other than that, we had a perfect stay.

Head to the breakfast buffet to enjoy a continental breakfast, fill your tummies for a packed day ahead.

11.30 AM - Head to The Bloc

The Bloc is located more towards the suburbs so taxis and hotel staff would suggest you to head over early in the day rather than in the evening to avoid peak hour traffic. The Bloc is an isolated area with stores and cafes set in freight containers. You can find our favourite store (great for instagramming) Things to Make and Do there, as well as Simple Day Cafe, Think Cafe and a restaurant which we personally were to stuffed with sweet treats to try. 

We will do another post with more details of what we ate and our reviews on them. (You've got to stay tuned!)

3 PM - Head back to the City

Grab a taxi on the main road and head back to the city. You can either take a cab all the way to your next location or simply take a taxi to the nearest BTS stop (their train system)...
