Glass and wood poetic flower vase.
THOMAS BENZEN ON THE DESIGN "The Elevated vase is about doing something exceptional for flowers. The wooden bowl holding the glass vase elevates the flowers, almost ritually, and frames them in a new Nordic poetic way. The materials are inspired by the flowers and branches I would put in the vase. The wood represent the roots in the soil and the glass the airy treetop, as it stands in nature. All together, creating a vase that combines a solid and rooted base with a light and divine top."

THOMAS BENTZEN ON HIS DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
I like to create objects that are functional and simple and meet the human need while in use - and simply create joy while not. For me durability means quality, form and functionality. And putting an immense amount of energy into making virtues out of necessities.
THOMAS BENTZEN ON NEW NORDIC DESIGN
To me Scandinavian design has always been about honesty and functionality comprised with poetry. I like it that way. And I think Scandinavian designers have succeeded into bringing their heritage into a time, where we no longer stand next to the cabinetmaker, but are challenged and thrilled by new materials and new ways to produce.
