Bamboo is a durable evergreen plant that stands tall despite extreme conditions. The Chinese consider bamboo as representing the ideal qualities of the superior man: the inner hollowness representing humility and durability in all conditions representing incorruptibility and moral fortitude. Inspired by the shape of the bamboo stalk, German design team design Scheider has created a tranquil centerpiece for the modern home.
Without flowers, the vase can stand along as a glowing centerpiece; or with flowers the combination of materials heightens the essence and vitality of whatever is showcased within. The semi-translucent duotone glass is a result of craftsmanship from the Qing Dynasty. Fired at high temperatures, it is a product of only the most skilled glass-blowers, who formed the vase piece by piece.
