The vase is designed to use reflective polished aluminium or glass mirror (white prototype pictured) to amplify the presence of the flowers it holds, and to create reflective visual effects through the angles in the piece.
Maximizing possibilities for the flower arranger while  maintaining the simplest possible design was the intent of the  Pyramid Vase. Many combinations of horizontal sections  permit incredible variation of presentations. User participation is invited (playing with various  arrangements of the pieces and building a form to suit the  placement). But deep involvement in ‘constructing’ the vase  is not required since in the simplest forms the pyramid design facilitate classic floral arrangement. In the most principle of  the possible forms that the vase can take, it provides the two  most used vase shapes - either a 'bucket' or ‘inverted bucket’ and providing both in one product was an aim in the design.  The sectioned design also allows for compact-ability and thus easy storage and transport since sections can fit within each  other. The vase itself can be focal- through striking geometry,  or act as an extremely functional backdrop where simplicity  permits emphasis on the floral arrangement. The design also  lends to use for functions other than floral display.

- Designer’s Perspective - This design was a finalist in the Carrol Boyes design competition (2010), for which the theme was “Vase - a lifestyle”. Realizing that the dominant characteristic of a modern lifestyle is that it is variable (homely and warm one minute, and corporate and industrial the next), a vase for the contemporary lifestyle simply has to be variable itsetlf. This is done by taking a very simple shape (yet classically beautiful in its simplicity), with no patterning or distracting detail, and creating variability in the fundamental form that the vase can take on.The many outcome vases that result from combinations of the layers of the vase are too many to describe. From a point of simply exploring the extent to which a vase can be made variable it is a pity that, as a vase, it must hold water and must have a sealed base, which prevents access from the very ‘bottom’.
