Designed by Sigolène Prébois and Catherine Lévy in 1991, the distinct April Vase comprises 21 tubes and is inspired by Japanese ikebana. Its shape is adaptable and enables each flower to be isolated and therefore glorified. The metallic rings slot together providing infinite flexibility for composing your arrangement. You can add or take away segments. It was an immediate success in France, the United States and Japan before joining the permanent collection of the Centre Pompidou in 1997. The April Vase remains one of the era’s most enduring icons. 

Clean the tubes with a bottlebrush (and a little white vinegar to remove limestone deposits), or remove the tubes from the metal structure and pop them in the dishwasher (do NOT wash the metal structure in the dishwasher!). After using it in water, the metal gets oxidized: a “white rust” will appear. It comes with a handy spare glass tube. Extra tubes available separately.
