OOPARTS-002 is a vase carved out of an aluminum cylinder. It shines delicately in the light, highlighting the beauty of arranged flowers and plants. With its simple yet luxurious appearance, it can be used for a variety of occasions.

Ancient architects carved plant shapes into the heads and bodies of columns to give them the strength of plants reaching towards the sky. The shallow vertical grooves, known as fluting, are carved into the surface to amplify the column’s sculptural appearance through light and shadow, emphasising their verticality and elegance. Following this ethos, OOPARTS-002 has fluting-like cutting marks carved out of aluminium to highlight the flowers arranged in it instead of the plants that were sculpted on ancient columns.

Dimensions: diameter 48mm, height 150mm

Precautions for use

  • Avoid chemicals and other products used to prolong the life of flowers, as they may degrade the anodised aluminium coating and cause discolouration.
  • Only use a neutral detergent to clean in order to prevent the deterioration of the anodized aluminium coating.
  • We cannot be held responsible for any injuries or problems caused by using the product for purposes other than as a vase.
