Here's some info from Isolation Unit:
An archetypical shape, sliced into individual segments, that can be shifted or rearranged.
This might cause surprise because we expect that the water inside will seep out: In reality, the vase will continue to keep you flowers fresh and bright.
The design shows with simple means how much we trust our experience and perception to be true.
A vase that plays with our experience and perception and interacts with the nature of the flowers.
SHIFTING VASE is crafted of solid black granite or white marble by an artisan in Kagawa prefecture. It is first shaped as a whole and then sliced into five individual segments with identical height.
The segments can be stacked and assembled freely in order to fit your favoured flowers. The water is contained only in the bottommost part in the manner of ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement.
