atelier oï designed the Decompose vase for Danese/Artemide S. p. A. It combines a lifeless element – an industrial, semifinished product – with nature. The vase starts as a solid, cylindrical  form but becomes more immaterial as you progress along its length with strips whose width decreases gradually, into rings that stretch upwards at an angle. The thought behind the design originated from the idea of opening the rings into a progression that changes each time. Through industrial processing using a cutting principle, the object is turned into a form whose shape is not modified, but rather carries on the idea of growth in its interaction with the nature contained within.

Made of laser-cut anodised aluminium, the Decompose vase is fitted with a clear glass element to hold flowers and plants.
