Schizo Vase.

I have seen some of the coolest product designs come from the Dutch. The Schizo Vase is no exception. The vase is actually inspired by the mental disorder, Schizophrenia. This psychiatric diagnosis is a mental illness characterized by abnormalities in the perception or expression of reality.

This vase by OOOMS has two faces. Because of the ribbed surface the silhouette of two different shapes can be seen. Is the one shape more real than the other? The vase, which is quite functional, is definitely a 'conversation piece'.
