The principle behind the manufacture of airvase is the use of a sheet of paper to create a container with a few simple hand movements. The user turns into the designer: the starting point is a round sheet of paper with slits. By carefully pulling this sheet of paper, the mesh develops into a “vase” which enfolds air. Although it is formally referred to as a “vase”, it is possible to adapt the basic form to an endless variety of shapes with a myriad of uses.
The airvase can be used for storing odds and ends, or as a vase; but it can also be used as packaging for wine bottles.

The space between each slit is such that it allows for the creation of the elegant form of a typical vase. Depending on the viewing angle, the colours of airvase change. It attracts attention as every side of the paper brings new facets to the fore.

Whatever the material, pattern or scale, the fundamental idea of the airvase remains – which is to add life , colour and joy to any environment.
