This ceramic vase by French designer Paul Menand can be stood upright or laid horizontally to adapt to the size of flowers it holds.
The Reversed Vase is based on the idea of a "two-in-one" object, Menand told Dezeen. "You can put a small daisy, but also a large lily flower inside."
The container is similar in size and proportions to a household brick, with one circular opening on the long and another on the short side, allowing the vase to be rotated through 90 degrees.
"The brick was the starting point, I simply added two openings, and the shape was defined," the designer told Dezeen.
Each vase comes with a cork stopper to be placed in the unused opening, recalling old jerry cans and other containers.
The stopper is topped with a rubber seal to ensure no water escapes.
We've also featured a vase with an adjoining lamp that is operated by touch and a vessel with a funnel protruding from the side so that the water to be changed without removing the flowers. See more vase designs »
