Home appliances which are essential in our daily lives are always inside our homes. People who live in the era of ‘individuality’ tend to add new value to their own houses and dislike products that are only function-oriented. They prefer products thats are just beautiful for how it looks, and ones that can make the house look attractive. ‘VASE’ is a steam vacuum designed by this point of view. Steam vacuums are a product necessary for cleaning, but it is a product that you want to hide when you’re not using them. Also, although it is a product that is filled with water, it does not have the right characteristics. Plus, a convenient and natural mode change must be needed between the handy type and stand type. This project designed a steam vacuum by the motif ‘vase’. This is an object for the house, and the shape of the vase gives convenience when filling water. In addition, users can change the direction of the handle for a smooth mode change.


So unique! Special design!,Very nice organic biomimicry inspired form & relationship to terracotta/earthenware motif that relates well to its utility & reference to organic/plant growth...
