Inspired by the sabrage of champagne—a radical and enjoyable action—Vase en Puissance is a hermetic container made of blown glass that must be deliberately broken. To do this, a simple electrical kit is provided to break the neck of the vase. It encourages users to develop transgressive and liberating behaviors in everyday life.
