Nendo has designed  glass vases shaped like space helmets for Chinese lifestyle brand Zens.

This series of vases and bowls called Scent, which take the form of glass spheres that Nendo likens to "space helmets" that encapsulate tall vases and shallow bowls.

Each glass hood features a circular opening through which the flower, plant or fruit can be seen. The unusual hooded design keeps the scent of the encased item close, like a bell jar over a scented candle, so that when the user gets close to the vase they enjoy a more intense smell.

Nendo made a version of this design in frosted glass to hide the content thus "intensifying awareness of the sense of smell".
