Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken has presented his new Single Flower vase this week. The design will be officially launched at Salone del Mobile in Milan.

Despite we love simple and deeply conceptual design of Daniel Rybakken, we could not forget our favorite mid-century designer Carl Auböck who designed many similar vases in the 1950s. As a reaction for after-war financial crisis in austria, Auböck has designed these vases for everyone who could not buy expensive pack of flowers, but only just one piece. Very precise brass objects are small table sculptures. Has Rybakken designed his vase also as a reaction for global economical crisis today?
