Noming Vase, Frank Kerdil, Flat Pack Vase, Eco-Friendly Vase [1]

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the most beautiful, and Frank Kerdil’s Noming Vase [2] is no exception. Made from a unique paper-based material comprised of 51% pure chalk, the flat-pack vases are easily assembled origami-style into organically-shaped and steadfastly-waterproof vases to adorn your breakfast table. Their sturdy-yet-flexible form makes them almost impossible to break, a cheeky critique on the legendary Ming vase (hence the name, No…ming [3]– get it?!). And as if you needed another reason to love them, Noming [3] Vases are delivered flat, can be scribbled on and customized, AND are only $15 for a set of four from You Say Tomato [2], making it that much easier to stop and smell the flowers every day. Thanks to Mark for the tip!
