anika engelbrecht: swell vases

german designer anika engelbrecht combines simple ceramic vessels with colourful balloons to create the

swell vases. the series is comprised of five different vase forms each perforated and designed with lots

of negative space. by adding a series of colourful rubber balloons, each vase is able to hold water and

flowers. the weight of the water fills the balloons and forces them out of the perforations in the vases.
the result is white vases bulging with red, green and blue. the balloons can be rotated between the vases
to create hundreds of different combinations.
