Ammo by Jean Marc Gady, a French industrial designer, is a vase that sits at a dangerous tilt. Although it looks like it will keel over at any given moment, the action is pure illusion. There will be no fallen flowers or spilled water unless someone accidentally knocks it over themselves. Instead, the vase is purposely angled to give the traditional design an exciting makeover.

Considering how simple the overall design of Ammo by Jean Marc Gady is, this tilt gives it a lot of character. In fact, it looks like it is generously offering flowers to the first taker, bowing down reverently as it holds the blooms out. Or, as My Modern Met observes, "Like a cannonball, it sits ready to shoot something up into the air."
