Dutch studio Oato partnered with porcelain expert Frans Ottinink to create the Scape series, a collection of vases which feature a domed shape. The base of the vases are six-sided and have identical imprints, allowing them to fit together seamlessly. The hexagon was, in fact, the only shape that would accommodate the vase's side-by-side configuration.

The studio describes the collection by saying, "Scape are small, modular vases shaped like little hills that transform any surface in your home into a landscape." At the top of each hilly vase is a cylindrical cistern that can accommodate a single flower stem.

The vases, which are all made by hand, are available in camel, dark and light grey. The colors are achieved by blending pigment directly into the porcelain.
