The New Old Vase by Kimu Design
Updated: Jan 23, 2020
The New Old Vase disassociates itself from traditional flower ware having an inherent volume, leaving only a linear structure that blurs the cultural imagery of traditional vases of the East and West. Positioning a receptacle redesigned to one crafted from wood transforms the cultural imagery of the object: Place the wooden flower ware on top of the linear framework and flowers and plants are free to unfold in the same manner as the outgoing broad-mindedness cultural values of the Western world. Move the wooden flower ware to the bottom of the linear framework and a miniature world is seen, the outer framework reminds one of a 3D coordinate system surrounding the greenery within.
