"Do not touch": This is generally the warning that appears in front of glass objects displayed in shops. Once at home the warning remains in our heads because we are scared of breaking it. The Touch me! Vase wants to upset this perception. Therefore, this glass art-piece can be touched, manipulated, and customized by users thanks to its geometry. The shape of the vase can literally change every day, so users will become part of the creative process.
