Daniel Rybakken - Single Flower Vase

Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken is probably most renown for his experimenting with daylight and working to create the illusion of daylight. Don't miss out on his current show The new light at DogA in Oslo if you're around.

Amongst his other conceptual experiments is this Single Flower Vase, shown in Milan 2012. By simplifying the vase from something esthetic on its own, down to a simple plate, the focus is shifted over to the flower.

From an ikebana perspective it resembles a simplified single material arrangement. When there is nothing to distract, you realize that all of the plant has form and character of its own.
