A small raised surface may be all that you need, but it's clear that you could get so much more out of it, as in the case of the Safety Vase. So much more than a bedside table, this unique piece of walnut wood atop spindly whittled legs incorporates a small hole through which a woven amphora has been placed.

Hannah Niskanen-Benady created this peculiar project as a way to explore the relationship between hard materials and soft ones, curious to see how they could be brought together in harmony. The result is an utterly charming side table that enhances to aesthetic and the function of an otherwise ordinary piece of furniture. The crocheted merino wool vessels that hang through the night stands provide users with a gentle sensory experience when they go to collect their jewelry, car keys or other possessions from the Safety Vase.
