Vase / Public Furniture


Through a game of scale, symbology, iconology and the appropriation of a public tree, this public furniture intents to aware about the deforestation, the importance of the implementation of sustainable forest policies and the socio-environmental responsibility that these represent for a sustainable future of our forests.
The design of the Vase played with various factors simultaneously in order to reach an object capable of providing the experience intended. Factors as ergonomics, proportion, material, as well as a modular and rational drawing allowing a step by step production method, were took in consideration for this design.
