Tyvek Vase

industrial design

Recent Rhode Island School of Design graduate Jiwon Choi created a clean and elegant, conical shaped, vase made of Tyvek.

Tyvek, by DuPont, is a great material made of nonwoven high-density polyethylene fibers. The material feels a bit like paper but lends itself to a variety of applications because of its characteristics: durable, light-weight, highly breathable and waterproof.

The intent of Choi was to create a package for a couple of flowers that would be simple and light but strong enough to stand upright.
