The concrete parts sit within each steel frame and weigh the pieces down to prevent them toppling over.

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.
