The LusionBloom, the world's only illusionary magnetic leaning vase, is the most intriguing vase EVER, and together we can bring it to the world!

The LusionBloom curiously remains upright, even while leaning. It appears as though the LusionBloom defies gravity. Filled with flowers and water, the LusionBloom still doesn't topple. In addition, steel vases can be attached to one another. How does this happen? A unique arrangement of ferrous material and neodymium magnets (and a technique called "pole shaping") make this possible and keep your friends guessing as to the method by which the LusionBloom remains upright.

Magnetic LusionBloom vases are:

  • Ilusionary. The vases appear as though they defy gravity, remaining upright even while leaning.
  • Topple-resistant. Your pets, the wind, or a rocking boat will not easily topple the LusionBloom vase. Magnetic forces keep the LusionBloom upright when other vases topple.
  • Stackable. LusionBloom vases can be magnetically attached to one another. Intriguing tiered flower arrangements possible.
  • Durable. Vase containers are composed of galvanized and powder-coated (interior and exterior) steel. Base Plates are galvanized steel. The LusionBloom offers a lifetime of beauty.
  • Fun. The LusionBloom will certainly be a topic of conversation, wherever you choose to display them (wedding, home, party, restaurant, boat, etc.).
  • Unique. You won't find these patent pending vases ANYWHERE else.
  • Ingenious. Similar "pole shaping" techniques that I used on a graduate thesis make the LusionBloom possible.
  • Limitless. Beautiful vase arrangements are infinite!

I designed, prototyped, and patented the LusionBloom. After many design iterations the LusionBloom is now ready for large-scale production. The funds pledged on Kickstarter will fund the first large-scale production of steel LusionBloom vases. Funds raised will pay for tooling, machining, finishing, assembly, inspection, and shipping of the LusionBloom to your front door. 

*Your desired vase color will be requested after the funding completion date. The three highest demand vase colors (of black, white, silver, red, and gold) will be offered. Initial market testing suggests that black, silver, and red vases will be most popular. Your shipping address will also be requested after the funding completion date.
