The beautiful “Flowery Tale” collection by MECLI is a series of flower vases in which seemingly ordinary books are turned into vessels for flowers, and pieces of art, if you ask us. The cleverly designed pieces create an illusion in which the flowery blooms have sprouted directly from the book’s spine, making it seem like something out of a fairytale. With a single turn of a page, a book is turned into a flower vase, in which the relief of the pages forms a silhouette reminiscent of classic vase forms.
As the MECLI flower vases make the unimaginable imaginable, and a fairytale into reality, it’s only fitting that the design carries the name Flowery Tale
MECLI is a paper product brand from Shizuoka Japan, operating at the foot of Mt.Fuji, exploring “the charm of paper one by one, by reconstructing it from a different perspective”. This ideology is translated into the Flowery Tale design in a beautiful and whimsical way. The design is sure to steal not only flower lovers’ hearts, but book and paper lovers, equally.
Creating a true wow factor, the body of the vase is hidden within the book, and only upon opening it and spreading its “pages”, the three-dimensional form of the vase is revealed.

The Flowery Tale design comes in three different versions, but as the book can be flipped around on either of its edges, a total of six designs are possible to be enjoyed. Simply flip over the book to choose the shape of a vase that looks best with your chosen flowers. Insert the glass tube between the spine, arrange your flowers, and place it in your favorite spot where you can enjoy it all throughout the day.
If you fell in love with the whimsical design as much as we did, you can find the Flowery Tale collection available for purchase at the MECLI online store, but also follow MECLI on Instagram for more Flowery Tale inspiration.
