Hole in a box
The idea behind HOLE IN A BOX is to make use of the materials around us. In Denmark alone, we use more than one million bottles a day. With HOLE IN A BOX, a few of these bottles may now have a longer and more beautiful life. Cut the bottom off a PET bottle, insert the plug in the hole, and you will always have a vase of the proper size. The design of the vase is simple and anonymous – and at first glance bereft of function. But once the bottle is fitted, and the flowers are put in the case, the function emerges, and the design fades into the background.
