“The FlexVase is very special to us. Not just because it’s our own design, but with this product we were able to start our business and put our label on the map. Especially after winning a Dutch Design Award in 2009 for ‘best consumer product’, it became one of our most successful items. Although the idea of the vase is simple, the production process turned out to be quite complicated. Particularly because the detailing of the vase in porcelain comes pretty close, it was hard to reach the quality level we desired. That is why we visited our producer in China several times to personally guide the production process.

The FlexVase consists of a base part with three different inserts. The inserts can be exchanged to adapt the vase to the bouquet it holds. Based on the canning jar principle, a practical clip holds the pieces together. The clip forms a nice contrast with the pure white porcelain and is a decorative and functional element at the same time. A black rubber ring ensures the porcelain parts stay separated from each other. The FlexVaas has an archetypal shape and comes as a complete set including three inserts.
