The modern bottle meets nature’s original water purifier. Elegant enough for a dinner party, this bottle and white charcoal stick—known in the Japanese as kishu binchotan—transform ordinary tap water into mineral-rich H2O.

Known for creating pieces that blur the line between functional design and art, designers Andi Kovel and Justin Parker's Slump Vases for Esque are colorful, memorable, and just plain fun to use. The vases come in 12" ($348), 14" ($598), and 18" ($898) sizes, and a range of colors including blue, fuschia, and orange (we are partial to the orange—imagine it holding blooms of varying shades of orange and yellow, or, for contrast, filled with emerald green foliage like salal).
Drawing inspiration from the beauty of the natural world, the undulating shape of each Aalto vase alludes to the untamed shorelines of Finland's thousands of lakes.

The Aalto Vase is decidedly sculptural, making it as much a striking visual accent when left empty on a tabletop or shelf as when it is filled with freshly cut flowers.
