Because of its phenomenal postwar development, Japan is full of urban ruins. As a matter of fact, exploring of abandoned buildings (haikyo) has become a popular hobby and the subject of some amazing photography! Using haikyo as its inspiration, Pull+Push Products from Kyoto has created the Truss Planter Flower Pot, one of the most interesting approaches to a plant pot we have seen!
Handmade from mortar, glass and brass, the Truss Planter Flower Pot looks like a miniature abandoned building. The attention to detail is amazing, such as where one of the pillars has crumbled to expose the rebars! It's big enough to hold a small plant but not so big as to dominate your space, and if your thumbs aren't particularly green you can always use it as a candle holder or container for other objects. Add an interesting note to your living room or home with this fine example of Japanese design ingenuity.
The Truss Planter Flower Pot features:
- Size: 6.5 x 6.5 x 10cm (2.5 x 2.5 x 3.9")
- Designed by Nobuhiro Sato
- Materials: mortar, glass, brass
- Handmade in Kyoto, Japan
