A Fine Specimen

Posted on Sep 4, 2013 by

The Weight vases are as funky as they are functional. Created by Thai designer Decha Archjananun for Spécimen Editions, they combine raw concrete and steel in a simple yet striking design. What makes them particularly unusual is that the flowers’ stems, usually constrained within the body of a vase, are actually on display – making them a design feature in their own right. The steel frame supports the flowers, while the concrete base contains the water that sustains them. The stems are framed within the space between.

The Weight vases are available from Made In Design in four slightly different styles. Made In Design also offers a complete set of all four vases. Dot them around your home or make a single eye-catching display with a selection of exotic flowers.

We love the contrast between the raw industrial concrete and steel of this Weight vase and the vibrant green and soft textures of the flower it holds.

This delicate soft pink spray looks really beautiful against the more functional materials of the vase.
