Nature is often a leitmotif for Scandinavian design and one reason why it continues to resonate. In conceiving the Elevated Vase for Danish house Muuto, designer Thomas Bentzen took his cue from a forest glade. "The materials are inspired by the flowers and branches I would put in the vase," he says. "The wood [base] represents the roots in the soil and the glass the airy treetop, as it stands in nature." Of course, it's an altogether sophisticated rendition in mouth-blown glass with a solid ash base from the hand of the acclaimed designer, who started his own studio in 2010 and co-founded the collective Remove. And the Elevated moniker is charmingly twofold as the platformed vase raises an arrangement above a table surface while also, as Bentzen puts it, "doing something exceptional for flowers."
