Growing a plant from seed requires time and attention. Once your little seedling has sprouted into a full-blown plant, repotting is even necessary ... unless you're using Growth.
Growth is the brainchild of London-based design duo Bike and Begum Ayaskan, who run Studio Ayaskan.
Inspired by the Japanese art of origami, the three chic pots above are actually one and the same.
As your plant grows and the roots expand, so does Growth.
The pot itself is made of a polypropylene that has been precisely folded into its beginning stage.
Growth was born from the designers' passion for nature and their desire to incorporate it into something tangible.
"In nature, everything evolves, adapts, grows, blooms, degrades, dies, gets absorbed, reused," explained the duo.
While finding the inspiration was easy, executing the sleek and functional pot was challenging.
They experimented with many different origami patterns, until they found one that suited their needs.
After they settled on the pattern, they set to work on the math that would make it possible.
All the things most people don't remember fondly from school (like trigonometry and ratios) were used to get the pot to take the exact shape the designers had in mind.
Unfortunately, Growth can't be yours – yet.
Studio Ayaskan is currently in talks with several manufacturers and is hoping to put the geometric pot into production within the next few months ... with fun, new colors to boot!
