Hope Forever Blossoming (Portable plastic flower vase)

Glass/Vases/Flower Pots
At first glance, this product looks like an ordinary vinyl plastic bag, but when filled with water, it expands and transforms into a stable flower vase. Flower vases are heavy and unwieldy and thus rarely taken out of a room. However, vinyl plastic is thin and light so it’s easy to carry. There’s no worry of breaking it and it can be used many times over. Moreover, taking advantage of vinyl’s transparency, the differing beautiful patterns depending on the light are another
attractive quality of the vase. Just as we change clothes, you can also change flower vases or fold it away for storage when not in use. Inspired by the culture of folding that has taken root amongst Japanese who often live in small spaces, these flower vases shift the paradigm of meaning of a vase.
