Weight Vases by Decha Archjananun

Decha Archjananun just graduated from the MAS-Luxury course at University of Art & Design Lausanne (ECAL). Archjananun’s final project was a series of vessels called Weight Vases.

The designer explains: “‘What are vases? How do they work?’ Those were simple questions I asked myself about this historical object which was created in the Neolithic period.” The simple idea of a vase is to hold flowers, but Archjananun noticed that there are two main parts to a vase: the section that holds the water and the part the holds the stem.

“Weight” brings a new perspective on a vase design by the separation of two different parts which support each other. The water container is made of concrete and the light, airy steel holds the rest of the flower up.

The collection features four vases that can house just a single flower to a bouquet.
