Flowers Merged with Design

Frederic Ruyant Vases

— March 18, 2008 — Art & Design
In case you haven't noticed, designers are different. They see things differently. Ordinary things like vases become a challenge to provide more than just a container for greenery or flowers. French designer Frederic Ruyant designed these "bloody urban green" vases from ceramic which allows the greenery to become integral with the container. To become one, if you will.

"My aim is to endow these markers with a life of their own, a rhythm, a synergy between intuition, rectitude and pragmatism," said Ruyant. "Linking together opposites is a way of comforting my own relation to reality."

Implications - Homeowners are increasingly looking to adorn their interior spaces with modern decor that reflects aspects of their personality.
Trend Themes
1. Personalized Vases - Designers are rethinking vases and making them more than just a container for greenery or flowers, which presents an opportunity for companies to create personalized and unique vases.
2. Integrated Home Decor - The trend toward larger and more elaborate home decor indicates an opportunity for designers and innovators to create more integrated and cohesive decor options.
3. Minimalist Elegance - Designers are leaning towards minimalism with the 'less is more' philosophy, creating an opportunity for companies to create designs that portray elegance through simplicity.
Industry Implications
1. Home Decor - There is a growing demand for unique, modern decor that reflects homeowners' personalities and presents opportunities for new product offerings in the home decor sector.
2. Ceramics - Innovative designs like Frederic Ruyant's 'bloody urban green' vases highlight the potential for innovation in ceramics, presenting opportunities for designers and manufacturers in the industry.
3. Florists - This trend in personalized and innovative vases presents a disruptive innovation opportunity for florists to differentiate themselves and offer unique floral arrangements to their customers.
