Everybody loves to get flowers but if you’re sending that someone special fresh blooms on a regular basis, chances are they already have a couple cupboards full of those standard, mass-produced glass vases. Before they start thinking that you want them to open some kind of container store, consider giving them a gift that’s as aesthetically pleasing as it is practical: this Outline Vase. The piece comes straight from the Museum of Modern Art’s product collection and it’s immediately recognizable as a MoMA masterpiece. Artist Yuko Tokuda has captured the spirit and whimsy of modernism by transforming ordinary porcelain into an unforgettably playful vessel defined by its outline.
Open space in the middle of the case lets everything around and behind the 3D artwork shine through. Water collects in the vase’s tube-like perimeter, providing plenty of sustenance for blossoming rose buds or sun-drenched daisies. Deliver your gift complete with a bouquet of fresh blooms or tuck in some paper, metal, or wooden flowers to up that artistic factor. The slimline profile will look equally at home on the recipient’s desk, in their kitchen, or perched on their nightstand where it’s sure to induce a big, bright smile first thing every morning.
