V FOR VASE
“V for Vase” presents the results of a workshop collaboration between Hans Tan Studio and the National University of Singapore Industrial Design Programme. The “imaginative thinking” workshop directed by Hans Tan consisted of a series of progressive exercises aimed at unraveling one’s imaginal thoughts and developing lateral thinking. “Vase” was chosen as the subject to be reconceptualized by each of the final year industrial design students who attended.
The exhibition reveals 23 conceptual vases and documents more than a hundred unique vase definitions developed during the workshop, all of which prove to be more telling than its original meaning as found in the dictionary – “An open container, usually used for holding flowers or for ornamentation.”
