fung kwok pan: fluid vase

the fluid vase by fung kwok pan from singapore is a customizable vase that takes its form through an interactive digital design interface. the vase’s form simulates the moving fluid, something that is directly linked to the function of a vase. users can specify various aspects of the design to create a unique one off edition for themselves. adjustments like the speed and volume of water used can be altered and the final design is created through 3d printing technologies. the digital simulations are based on video of flowing water captured through high speed cameras. the design as featured in designboom’s ‘asia-now’ exhibition held at the dwell on design fair in los angeles this past june.
