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
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.
Decha developed the project while studying at the ECAL ( University of Art and Design Lausanne ) in 2011
