Designer Ricardo Saint-Clair seeks to foster communication and interaction through his designs. The playful Chalkboard Vase features a chalkboard front that can be used for drawings, messages, and more. The top of the bud vase houses a removable glass tube designed to hold water and flowers. This product was included in Destination: Brazil, a curatorial-approved, MoMA-exclusive collection highlighting contemporary design products from Brazil. Destination: Brazil was an extension of Destination: Design, the Museum's educational mission that introduces customers to innovative design concepts and production methods from around the world. A small hole on the side of the vase holds the included chalk.
