Saltik is a part of Form & Seek, a collective of young designers with the mission of creating new ways of looking at the world. The OP-vase collection features a unique pattern of carefully crafted cuts to magnify the beauty of the flowers placed underneath. Each piece is cut by hand in Istanbul, making each colorful vase one of a kind.

The glass structures fit around flowers in a traditional vase, mimicking a kaleidoscope in the way they distort the image. A single flower becomes a vibrant bouquet to the observer, including those visiting the London Design Festival last week. By intensifying the simple elegance of nature’s blossoms, OP-vases could easily make their way onto many gardeners’ and decor-lovers’ wish lists.
