Cake is a cutting edge New York City studio pushing the boundaries of apparel and objects. This is certainly the case for Cake's rather unconventional Anti Vase. Beautifully designed, it comprises solid steel, measures only 3 x 5 inches and is unlike anything ever seen as it questions not only the purpose of a vase but the perception of death.
Typically vases hold water to prolong the death of a cut flower, however the Anti Vase accepts the flower's death and celebrates its beauty. It is an interesting concept, which I am sure you will either really appreciate or not at all.
I think the contrast of the black and angular vase against the rose in particular makes for a very powerful composition.
