A vase designed by the world-famous interior designer Shiro Kuramata
This is a double-slot acrylic-block vase designed by Shiro Kuramata in 1989.
It is one of the iconic works of Shiro Kuramata.
A pink acrylic board has been manually sealed within each acrylic block one by one by skilled craftsmen. The glass test tube can also be freely inserted and removed.
The surreal acrylic-block flower base with a floating pink board visible through its transparent surface can be said to be the perfect fusion of technical craftsmanship and art.
Given its history of being sold at high prices at overseas auctions, the original flower base is a famous work that is globally recognized by Japanese people.
