Conjunto Soliflor diseñado por Luis Ramírez

Design by Luis Ramírez, Dekuba, Sargadelos

Soliflor set

“They seem to fall, but they do not. An adequate point of equilibrium allows these slender and stylized vases to stand all the time. The water their flowers need will reduce the point of gravity, doing the vases more stable. Capricious in their position, they will make a great change in any space if a caress or sigh makes them spin” (The designer´s own words, Luis Ramírez).

Find them at CONGA Shop on 3rd Street, at 1604, between 16 and 18. Miramar, Playa. Havana, Cuba.
