shallows Vase by Kazunaga Sakashita

Home > Winners > #56060


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
shallows

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Vase

INSPIRATION:
I got idea from the puddle which forms on a road in after the rain and the water filled by a glass fully. That's all experience from time of the infancy. Before about 10 years, suddenly, I remembered the time. And I thought I'd like to design the vase for which the surface tension of the water was used.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A crystal vase through the use of surface tension of water. It works as making the top of solid crystal mortar shape can have fluid. The flower can be independent by a cylindrical hole in the center. The vase can be filled with water by surface tension, and the border getting fuzzy. In that moment, you will get lulled into the illusion that you can see the water column and flower only as if the vase disappeared.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
You put a saucer at the level place. And a vase is placed on it. A flower is put in. Water is poured. The surface tension occurs. The water which overflowed collects on a saucer. You look at that. That's everything of the process which enjoys this vase.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in 2012 in Japan and finished in April 2013, and was exhibited in Japan in April 2013.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
This vase is made of the crystal. And this vase is produced by machining.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
φ75×95mm φ120×65mm φ90×115mm

TAGS:
KazunagaSakashita, CRITIBA, crystal, vase, flower vase

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
First production by acrylic fiber was considered. But delicately, more acrylic fiber degrades by ultraviolet rays. Without using that, so I looked for the different material. So I considered the value of the water. I thought need would like to raise the value of the indispensable water for a creature. I have decided to use a crystal as its material suitable for an idea. I tried to express simple beauty by that a boundary of the material of the vase and water becomes ambiguous.

CHALLENGE:
It's the biggest device that the upper part of a vase was made cone-shaped to show the surface tension of the water effectively. And it is the most difficult to polish in the hole in the core transparently and the edge of a vase uniformly.
