'heirloom vases', 2013
french designer benjamin graindorge showcased the heirloom vases at the 2013 maison et objet exhibition in paris,
the art of beautifully arranging cut stems, leaves, and flowers in vases and other containers evolved in japan over seven centuries --
also called kado (the way of the flower) -- the art has seen major development in the 16th century.
there are many different schools of traditional ikebana and graindorge interprets it in a very contemporary manner
by creating basket-shaped-vases made of ceramic.
