‘Origami’ Pots Grows Together With Your Plants

Growth, an innovative pot design inspired by the Japanese art of origami, grows together with your plant, expanding to accommodate more soil and a wider root network. This design, by the London-based duo at Studio Ayaskan, aims to make plant pots more sustainable than ever. “In nature, everything evolves, adapts, grows, blooms, degrades, dies, gets absorbed, reused,” the designers, Bike and Begum Ayaskan, told Contemporist. “The modern approach to building is the opposite. Here, things exist in stages: objects are produced, used, discarded… Growth, through it’s carefully calculated origami pattern, mimics nature’s ability to grow and transform by unfolding over time, bringing these qualities to the manufactured object.”

Monstera Pots by Tim de Weerd

Designed by Tim de Weerd, the Monstera-plant pot has long ornate roots that extend downwards from the main container up top. Bent by hand, the organic-like roots are covered with epoxy clay and finished with a thick layer of white, high gloss lacquer. The result is a design that looks fragile but is unexpectedly strong and stable. “The design casts a new light on the otherwise rigid and oppressive traditional plant pot. The Monstera-plant pot – with its ornate roots – is an extension of the plant – rather than a separate object.” says de Weerd.
