You don't have to examine the Tangent & Grow collection for very long to start wondering how the elegant vessels stand. The vases and the flower pots have all been given rounded bottoms, yet they're perched upright and look on the verge of toppling over.

The truth is that the ceramic containers don't need to balance independently; each piece has a magnet embedded in the very base, and this attracts another magnet in the surface of the special iron or wooden tray beneath. Hallgeir Homstvedt's quirky set consists of a dome-shaped planter and a series of three bouquet holders that come in a variety of colors. The Tangent & Grow collection invites you to arrange flower cuttings and to foster young greenery with equipment that looks ironically un-grounded.
