Like a forest of pyrex tubes, this glass piece can be used as a candle holder or a vase. This collection won the Red Dot Design Award in 2008, Wallpaper's 2007 Best Centerpiece Design Award and the Design Plus Award in 2006.
Known for creating pieces that blur the line between functional design and art, designers Andi Kovel and Justin Parker's Slump Vases for Esque are colorful, memorable, and just plain fun to use. The vases come in 12" ($348), 14" ($598), and 18" ($898) sizes, and a range of colors including blue, fuschia, and orange (we are partial to the orange—imagine it holding blooms of varying shades of orange and yellow, or, for contrast, filled with emerald green foliage like salal). Made to order, by hand, in Portland, Oregon.
