The simply yet lovely flower frame is the ingenious design work of Cedric Ragot. Ragot has a terrific design aesthetic and his designs include such disparate items as snowboards, bicycles, crash helmets, tables, sofas, watches, clocks, and phones. The flower frames, which are constructed with integrated vases, resemble the â€œCompose-itâ€ versions of Ymer and Malta that also appear in the gallery. They are fabricated from the material more commonly used for kitchen counters, DuPont Corian.
