I came across the design of the above ceramic square vase (Vase Carré, 1999) from my friend Alexis who's cut out table is featured on design*sponge today. The vase was actually designed for Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake for his Paris boutique. Bouroullec states that, "The vase effectively suggests a particular way of organizing the flowers one-by-one, in line with the idea that we might have of ikebana." Check it and other great items out at the Bouroullec website.
