Vase d'Avril - the April vase - was created in 1991 by the two Paris-based designers, Sigolène Prébois and Catherine Lévy and is today considered a classic. So much so, in fact, that the Parisian museum, the Musée d'Art Moderne G. Pompidou, included it in its permanent design collection in 1997, because the museum saw the vase as an independent marker of the contemporary.
Vase d'avril is inspired in its construction and expression by 'ikebana' – the Japanese flower art form, which means making flowers come alive.
The vase consists of a metal structure with a total of 21 glass tubes, which can be placed in many different, optional positions. In this way, it is possible to create a new arrangement of the vase for each new bouquet, depending on the type of flower and wishes.
Vases d'Avril are produced in France and can be disassembled. Vase d'avril is sold with an extra glass tube.
