Organic vase

As an urban dweller with just not enough storage in his apartment, I appreciate design that appeals without being in function. So a vase that can sit on a table without flowers, yet without being just a vase is worth a closer look.

Benjamin Graindorge designed this vase with the pretentious and annoyingly difficult name ikebanamedulla (no capital I off course, because everybody uses capitals so why should Benjamin). I like the idea of it, but am not sure I like the outcome. I like the silhouette, and I also like the frail stem-like things ‘growing’ from the bottom. But the white backdrop with the jagged edge is too bold a statement, if that.
