Thai designer Decha Archjananun has made a series of vases with concrete bases to hold water and wire frames to support flower stems.
The concrete parts sit within each steel frame and weigh the pieces down to prevent them toppling over.
Called Weight Vases, the collection comprises different shapes for different types of flower arrangement.
Archjananun developed the project while studying at the Ecole Cantonale d’art de Lausanne (ECAL).
Here's some text from the designer:
What is a vase? How does it work?
Those were simple questions I asked myself for this historical object which was created since Neolithic period.
I found that, all the vases in the world have a same basic principle to hold flowers. There are 2 important parts which function differently.
Top part (vase-mount), has a duty to hold flower stem and base part, to hold water and also offer a stability to the vase.
"Weight" brings a new perspective on a vase design by the separation of 2 different parts which support each other.
Water container made of concrete pile-up on a steel piece to give a stability for holding flowers.
In the collection, there are 4 vases for different flower setting from single flower to flowers panel.
Project name: Weight Vases
