This See-Through Vase Showcases Plastic Bottles in a Skeletal Frame

This see-through vase isn't made of clear glass. The SOB (which stands for Save Our Bottles) vase design by Human Republic is a thin skeletal metal frame that reveals all of its insides. The unique vase design doesn't hold flowers on its own -- it holds the plastic water bottles that do. The simple and minimalistic flower holder can hold one or three plastic bottles at a time. Within each bottle, a single stem flower is placed for a dainty and chic appearance.

The design executes an environmentally conscious motive. The creators wanted to save the constant disposal of plastic bottles. The SOB vases give water bottles "a second chance and a new purpose at life." Because the frame is hollow, it showcases the act of recycling and the growth that's happening within in.
