The Crown Vase by Lambert Rainville – the transparent vase shown halfway through the stems of the flowers – provides flowers with the structural stability to stand on their own, without the support of a vase. The vase works by placing all of the stems at a slight angle so that they can use the natural strength of their stems to provide counterbalancing forces. The vase’s desirability is in its novelty, as its target market would purchase it precisely because it is so unusual to see self-supported cut flowers.
