These Plastic Bottle Vases Require the Reusing of Empty Containers

Central to the functionality of each of these plastic bottle vases is the insertion of used water bottle inside. The parametric structures of these stem holders are able to look transparent and open thanks to clear containers within them that actually hold the water.

Libero Rutilo's 3D-printed vases come in a few shapes and sizes, yet each one is produced with a threaded connection that enables the user to screw in a half-liter bottle. The particular form of that container will barely be visible behind the unique textures of the iSinuous, the iSpider, the iLace and the iKnitted objects.

This product turns trash into part of the design, leading as an example of how to give consumable items a longer life––especially in bringing them into the realm of elegant design.
