The vase is made from translucent acrylic with ABS plastic. The patterned acrylic distorts the appearance of any plant placed into the vase. Interestingly, it makes the plant turns everything into a low-resolution, 8-bit-ish mosaic. Using a rather cleverly patterned/faceted acrylic piece, the pixel vase just warps your perception of everything behind it, turning real life into a bunch of pixels.
