One such project was the Crevasse flower vase which incorporates all of the British deconstructivist architectural characteristics pervasive throughout Hadid's work. This vase is part of a special project that shows Hadid's graceful, utilitarian style cast in 18/10 mirror-polished stainless steel for an overall impressive and bold aesthetic. Its geometric line and materials combine to look as if it were a shining, swaying tower.
