Small April Vase made in France, made of 21 tubes, height 4'', Ø 0.78'', total length 22''
Created in 1991 by Sigolène Prébois and Catherine Lévy, is today considered a classic. The Georges Pompidou Museum of Modern Art considered this vase as a marker of its time and included it in its permanent design collection in 1997.
Inspired by Japanese ikebana, this vase isolates each flower in a tube to better showcase it. Articulated by metal rings, the April Vase is of variable geometry, it adapts to the flowers it shelters and to the supports on which it stands, and gives everyone the great pleasure of composing a successful bouquet. Made of glass tubes and similar metal parts that fit into each other, the Avril vase can be disassembled.
Slimmer than its illustrious parent, the Little April Vase adapts easily to the different corners of its environment. It is also composed of 21 test tubes - in a reduced formula.
The zinc protecting its metal parts becomes matt in contact with water and is decorated with a light grey rust like frost. The metal parts are not dishwasher- and paint remover-safe. On the other hand, the Vases d'Avril are not afraid of a good bath with dishwashing liquid.
The Small April Vase has a spare tube and additional tubes are available separately.
