Deflower Vase

by Ami Kealoha in Design on 24 October 2006

Fully Loaded chair made from shotgun shells, his new Deflower Vase is a clever and slightly subversive use of everyday objects. Where the chair adds an element of violence to a piece of furniture, the vase introduces a little something different, reinventing the condom by using it to sheath a common juice glass in color—Reh also calls it a "Banality preventer." Inspired by Trench Art, "a practice by which soldiers would take artifacts of war and transform them into objects of greater constructive value, the Deflower Vases are part of Reh's new series celebrating the accessibility of DIY called, "Time to D-I-Y."
