The Prosthetic Vase by Shaye Shafranek is not only crazy and futuristic looking, but it keeps plants alive longer, which makes it perfect for me (the plant killer).

The Prosthetic Vase by Shaye Shafranek uses capillary tubes to suck water up into the plant, which keeps them alive. A cool design that gives me a somewhat green thumb? Can’t beat that!

Implications - The rise of environmentalism has caused consumers to look for innovative ways to integrate nature into their home's interior design. This innovative vase is inspired by the inner workings of the human body, making for a sculptural piece that's meant to spark conversation about science and technology.
