Dutch Design Week 09: FlexVaas, a vase that comes with three swappable tops to accommodate different types of flowers, won the Best Consumer Product category for designers Vij5 at the Dutch Design Awards on Saturday.
The ceramic components clip together with a wire clasp and rubber seal like those used on storage jars.

Here's some text from Vij5:
“Always a vase that fits your flowers !”
The porcelain FlexVase consists of a base part with three different inserts. The inserts can be exchanged to adapt the vase to the bouquet it holds.
Based on the weckpot principle, a practical clip holds the pieces together while giving the vase a simple decoration.

Material: porcelain, rubber rings and metal clips
