Inspired by Wolverine's metallic blades that go through his skin, Greek designer Yiannis Ghikas designed a 3D-printed vase that mimics the ribbed surface effect of something moving under our skin.

This science fiction special effects-inspired vase has a simple base like that of any other, which the designer then layers with three-dimensional decoration on only one side to give it that mutant effect.

"I was always impressed while watching science fiction movies when a foreign organism or a parasite was moving underneath the skin of a human being, altering its smooth surface with its own form," says Ghikas about his 3D-printed vase design.

That is why Ghikas used 3D printing to get the ribbed mutation effect, while keeping the vase looking smooth and sleek. Stats for Science Fiction-Inspired Vases Trending: Older & Warm
