* Unique chalkboard vase provides canvas for artistic flair
* Part of MoMA Destination: Design collection
* Created by Brazilian designer Ricardo Saint-Clair
Spring has sprung. Preserve your May flowers with a unique vase designed for everyday use by the Museum of Modern Art.
The MoMA exclusive design is a wooden square vase that doubles as a unique art piece. On the front side, you’ll find a playful chalkboard finish, which can be used for messages, reminders and your own artwork. On top of the block, a hole has been drilled down and filled with a removable glass tube. The tube has been designed to hold water and a few stems and flowers, completing the vase element to this piece of decor. A small hole on the right side of the 8″ x 8″ block holds the included piece of chalk.
This MoMA vase was designed by Ricardo Saint-Clair. The Brazilian designer has sought throughout his career to facilitate interaction and communication through his art. This theme holds true to the chalkboard vase, as viewers are encouraged to participate in the design.
The Saint-Clair vase originally appeared in the Destination: Brazil collection. This MoMA-exclusive collection is an extension of Destination: Design, which was introduced to showcase modern design products around the world. This series is a part of the museum’s educational mission aimed at introducing global production methods into the modern American home.
Whether you’re looking for a gift for your modern decor loving friend or you just want a unique addition for your flower displays, the MoMA chalkboard vase is a fun and interactive product that will help you stretch your artistic abilities. Get one for your desk at work or display it at home. By the way: Mother’s Day is coming up soon. We think mom would love this too.
