Pinch vase came from the idea of transforming an industrial item into a useful object through simple actions. Adam Shirley used a square-sectioned tube, first cut, then closed at one end with a welded base then flattened at the other end, to obtain a narrow, wide mouth. The bottom is shaped with four semi-spherical depressions that ensure good stability when resting. The particular shape of the vase - narrow and long - allows elegant flower arrangements, but can also be used for only one flower with the stem kept in the center. Manufactured by Alessi.
