Nendo: Jellyfish Vase
Milan Design Week 2017
Milan, Italy
30 vases of ultrathin silicon float in an aquarium filled with water. The strength and direction of the water's current is carefully adjusted so that they onduluate as if they were jellyfish.

Vases that float like jellyfish in the water. 30 vases of various sizes are placed in a 1800 mm aquarium filled with water and the strength and direction of the water’s current is carefully adjusted so that they undulate moderately. The vases are made out of ultrathin transparent silicon that has been dyed twice to give the impression that what is floating in the water is but a gradated silhouette of colours. 
The design was to redefine the conventional roles of flower, water, and vase by making the water inconspicuous, with an ensemble of both flowers and vases floating inside the filled water, as opposed to simply showing off flowers in a water-filled vase.
