The Bonsai Equilibrium vase has a serene presence about it, which has everything to do with the fact that it is inspired by the Japanese ancient art of pruning miniature trees. Since the purpose of the bonsai culture is to evoke contemplation for the viewer and a calm exercise of effort and ingenuity for the grower, it comes as no surprise that this is reflected in the Bonsai Equilibrium vase.

Designed by Beatrix Li-Chin Loos for Galerie Gosserez, the Bonsai Equilibrium vase can also be considered a sculpture due to its unique and pleasing form. Made completely out of scraps, each vase has four cardboard and lacquered elm wood circles that turn around a glass tube. Each circle can be reconfigured for harmony and balance purposes. I feel calmer just looking at the Bonsai Equilibrium vases.
