The Danish design team Norm never accepts a shape as determined or unchangeable. Why shouldn’t such a simple object have innovative designs?
The Menu Vase Vase has a simple, nice shape. The speciality is only revealed on second sight: There is another vessel inside of the vase – which is responsible for the name: Vase Vase. The function is therefore also doubled.
If the vases are beside each other, the differently sized vases make up a harmonic symbiosis with their fitting proportions. The Menu Vase Vase, however, is even more effective if both vessels are inside of each other: The light comes between both glass walls and the water inside of it seems to float.
That is how the vase is a unusual eye-catcher without acting obtrusive. The Vase Vase makes us creative because of its double character: Decorate the outside vase with sand, stones, or shells, so that the flowers in the inner vase are more emphasised. It is also possible to show different levels of water or to put coloured water in the outer vase… creativity has no limits!
