Concept

ELEVATED is a hand made vase that uses an unexpected mix of materials to support the design aim and reflect its Nordic origins. Ash wood is chosen to represent heavy and grounded, while glass is used to represent light and airy. The design of the vase plays with the contrast between the airy glass top and the heavy solid base of the vase. Made with mouth blown glass, ELEVATED is sculptural and decorative, even when displayed without flowers or branches.

“ELEVATED 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 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 and colorful treetop, as it stands in nature. Altogether, ELEVATED is a vase that combines a solid and rooted base with a light and divine top.”
Thomas Bentzen on the design.
