Designed by Strasbourg-based Beatrix Li-Chin Loos, the Bonsai Equilibrium is a soliflore vase completely made of medium and solid wood scraps. Shaped like a small Bonsai, four circular pieces turn freely around a glass tube. All of the elements are hand-assembled with carefully treated finishing touches. Each vase has its own bespoke packaging made of 100 per cent recycled cardboard and leather scrap.

Bonsai Equilibrium was created for the Emerging Design Editions exhibition at Ilivetomorrow gallery in Hong Kong last November. The special edition incorporates elm wood and strong pure colours that are meant to match the gallery’s white space. This was Li-Chin Loos’ first time in the city.
