London-based designers have invented an ‘origami’ pot that grows with your plant!
Called GROWTH, the shape-shifting object is no doubt the perfect companion to a plant as it grows from seedling stage to full maturation.
“Nothing stands still. Everything flows,” the designers explain.
In order to create the ‘origami’ pots, GROWTH uses a carefully calculated pattern to mimic what nature has mastered. As you can see in the photos, the pot transforms with the plant, something not usually witnessed in inanimate objects.
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.”
