Encounter with scientific glassware

A new floral narrative born from an encounter with scientific glassware

The concept for the product emerged quite by chance. Kawasaki was taken aback during a visit to a local scientific glass workshop, where he discovered a revolutionary manufacturing technique that defied the norms of traditional glass molding. Impressed by the artisans' mastery and the material's robustness and thermal resilience, he was inspired to design a small vase. Upon suggesting to Tamura the idea of crafting a vase designed to delight flowers, Tamura expressed his own desire to venture beyond scientific equipment. Their mutual passion propelled the project forward, culminating in the creation of a distinctive vase crafted from scientific glass—a material frequently utilized in everyday items across Europe—under the theme that "Flowers are balm for the soul and body."
