Ryu Yamamoto has created a stunning vase that could easily be mistaken for a piece of art. Simple yet sculptural, it puts a different spin on traditional floral arrangements by focuses on single stems rather than big bouquets. Ryu Yamamoto does so by using minimal materials that include a basic wireframe body and a small stone base.

Dubbed Chloris, Ryu Yamamoto's wire vase boasts a spatial ambiguity that will bemuse many people. He essentially creates "a floating 'frame' which reveals and emphasizes the flower stem in order to show the beauty of an entire flower’s existence, not only its blossom," as is written on the Fabrica Shop website. There is a sense of airiness about the design.
