If you are looking for a vase that changes colour then here it is. You move and the colour changes and this is what makes this a big different take on the vase as a whole. Ward van Gemert and Adriaan van der Ploeg, the Rotterdam duo has been designing a lot of products for the Nightshop and this vase is their latest piece which calls for a thorough personal interpretation. It’s made of plastic so you can be rest assured that it does not break and also is called the P.O.V, that is, subjective to point of view of the user or consumer. This has precisely to do with its colour scheme and not anything else.
There are currently some six different styles in this vase which starts with one called the First One’s bright and playful stripes, the Red One’s deep exploration of that particular shade of red; while others are somewhere between the Rainbow colours. “Apart from the fact that this one stands out the most, it’s also the closest to our original idea,” van der Ploeg said.
If you are wondering what makes this plastic P.O.V change its colour, you wouldn’t know yet. It although looks like it uses some kind of a lenticular technology to achieve its changing colour scheme. Furthering accentuating the mystery he said, “In Holland there’s a famous saying–het geheim van de smit–which loosely translates to, ‘That’s the secret of the blacksmith.’ In other words: It’s our secret.” So guys, you can keep guessing about its origins and make all your architect and engineering friends uncode this mystery for your own sake. It’s expected to be out on display in the Lambrate district during the famed Milan’s design week.
