bic daisy vase

the bic daisy vase is a hand blow moulded vase suitable for one daisy. i remember seeing it about a year ago and thinking what a simple idea it was. i though it looked easy enough and tried to do it myself, but it just didnt come out quite right. now designboom have an article on how it was made, and it all becomes clearer to me. maybe i'll give it another go!

in the designers words:

'the daisy vase changes our casual relationship to this hugely produced item into a personal and sometimes fragile experience. made from ballpoint pens these little vases are hand blow-moulded by jim. as the plastic becomes flexible it stretches allowing the vase to sit naturally.'

the vase is designed by giffin'termeer, who also designed the containership power (which i did a post on here). it is available from the designboom shop for $29/32 depending on where it is being shipped to.
