designed by milanese designer giorgio bonaguro,  ‘the roots’ vases are ambivalent objects that combine simple lines with an iconic shape: an outer clear glass cylinder joined with an internal element in colored glass representing the roots of a flower. these containers, made in blown borosilicate glass, are ambivalent because they can be used as decorative pots in two directions: on the first side as an individual flower-vase or for grouping multiple on the reverse side.
