London designer Roger Arquer has designed this vase with a funnel protruding from the side so that the water to be changed without removing the flowers.
Called Funnel Vase, the ceramic piece will be on show at an exhibition called Translations during the London Design Festival later this month.
The information below is from Arquer:
Funnel Vase (2010) is a ceramic flower vessel with a side opening in a funnel shape. The funnel helps to change the water without having to remove the flowers. The old water can be easily poured out through the funnel and replaced with fresh water, without a mess.
While being a very functional piece of design, Funnel Vase presents an original shape. The vessel has a gloss white glazing finish.
Funnel Vase is a challenging piece of ceramics since it’s made in one piece. The joint between the vase and the funnel holds the right angle making possible its production.
“I hope this vase will make the task of changing the water more gratifying”, says Arquer.
This piece will be exhibited during LDW at Translations.
