Chris Kabel

Designer Chris Kabel’s beautiful Hidden Vases project, one that combined industrial design, horticulture and photography and was featured in Plant Journal. Kabel investigated the idea of invisible water sources for the flowers, and produced a limited range of vessels as a result. I think the styling and photography, care of Frank Bruggeman and Mathijs Labadie, clinch the project: the delicate use of stems and saturation of colour evoke hyperreal still life paintings, rather than photos.

PS: more on Plant Journal – a Spanish biannual publication later this week. HF.
