Growth Expanding Origami Pot

The concept behind “Growth”, an expanding origami pot, is nothing short of genius. Instead of having to transfer a plant every time it outgrows its pot, the origami pot expands with the plant, dramatically decreasing the trauma the plant undergoes. This method also saves the plant owner a lot of hassle since he/she doesn’t have to transfer the pot and only needs to add soil. The design is absolutely exceptional. Based on Japanese origami technique, the pot is composed of triangular shapes. In its most compact position, the triangles are closely knit, and as the plant expands, the triangles take on a three dimensional and more fluid look. Continue reading

Busho Studio has transformed lightening fixtures from downtrodden Soviet-bloc factories, and illuminated the industry with their vintage industrial lighting works of art!
During the days of Communism, huge industrial structures filled the land in order to hold the mass of workers who toiled to prove their worth, and bring food to their tables. But once Communism fell, so too did the unethical work ethic that was employed by these factories. However, the mainframe and structural goods within still remained for years, untouched yet harnessing potential only an artist could see. Continue reading

The BoBo side table is truly one of those designs that screams creativity and imagination. The table was inspired by the African Baobab tree that has a wide trunk and fragile branches and which is unique in the African landscape due to its ‘disproportionate’ composition.
