Keeping flower books

It takes a special kind of vase to make this column and Fumiaki Goto's Hanabunko for 5×8 Products hits the mark with originality. Designed to slot among the novels on a bookshelf, the Hanabunko is a simple, rectangular container with an open corner. It's A6-sized — the size of a bunkobon, Japan's standard paperback, and has a central hole that helps keep a flower stem stable but also adds to the overall design.

Placed between books, you can add a little bit of natural greenery to your shelf, or use it on its own for clean, minimalist decoration.
