The bright lights that dominate the Shanghai skyline inspired this prismatic vase from Kartell. Designed by Italian architect Mario Bellini, the vases come in six different colors. An internationally renowned designer and architect, Bellini's designs are part of the permanent collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art.
The swirling design of the vase creates shadows and refracted light. Although they look supremely elegant, the vases are made from plastic rather than glass, perfect for outdoor parties. ($210 from AllModern).
