This vase by London designer Lambert Rainville supports flowers in a free-standing arrangement by holding their stems halfway up.

The prototype Crown Vase comprises a clear plastic ring of triangular funnels that sits halfway up the stems of flowers with sturdy stalks.

Each stem sits at an angle, balanced out by those leaning the other way on the opposite side of the circle.

"The flowers are treated as part of the vase and not just the content," said Lambert Rainville. "Making the most of the structural capabilities of the stems reveals the complete beauty of flowers."

The arrangement can be placed on a dish of water for fresh cut flowers or straight onto a table top for dried flowers.

    This would be a brilliant device for secreting into the top of a glass vase to keep the stems in place.

    All over the world florists and those of us who deal with flower arrangements are killing themselves laughing.

    David H. has a much better suggestion for this piece of frippery.
