Hallgeir Homstvedt has created a series of porcelain vases with strong Neodymium magnets attached at the bottom and cast iron trays for those vases designed to create new compositions for flowers in the home.

Tangent vases

Says Homstvedt, "The rounded base of the vases is tangent to the tray creating an appearance of the vases floating on the surface."


The magnet at the bottom of the vases lock them in an upright position while at the same time allow for free movement within the tray.


With the tangent vase collection you stand free to compose a unique setting with the desired number of vases and their position.

"The three different shaped vases are inspired by Giorgio Morandi's playful still life paintings of tableware, similarly the individual objects have character but their beauty comes from the grouped composition."


The vase prototypes are crafted in Oslo with the help of Silje Aune Eriksen.


Grow pots

The rounded silhouette of Homstvedt's Grow pots balance on an apparently ordinary piece of wood. "The shape of the pots grow from the tangent point and all the way up, providing plenty of internal space to grow herbs and plants."


The pots are made at one of the few ceramic manufacturers in Norway, located in the southeastern part of the country, where the clay is ideal for pottery and sourced from right outside the factory.
