Die aufgeheiterte Moderne

Thomas Bentzen on the design “The Elevated vase is about doing something exceptional for your flowers. The wooden bowl holding the glass vase elevates the flowers, almost ritually, and frames them in a new nordic poetic way. The materials are inspired by the flowers and branches I would put in the vase. The wood represents the roots in the soil and the glass the airy treetop, as it stands in nature. All together, creating a vase that combines a solid and rooted base with a light and divine top.”
The ash wood is shaped on a turning lathe, polished and painted with PU lacquer. The glass vase is blown by mouth and polished. The vase is hand made.
