These exclusive, handcrafted flower pots are created by immersion of fabric pieces into a particular concrete mixture, composed by sand and water. After a period of soaking into the mixture, flower pots are prepared and shaped for drying until complete hardening. They come in white or grey concrete, however the concrete mixture can be colored to obtain pots that best suit your needs.
This handcrafting method is unprecedented and end results are something never seen before. Pot shapes are truly surprising, fabric can assume positions you don't expect, initially it may lays on the floor or on a table and suddenly it rises up in unexpected ways. Every single flower pot is an “atto unico”, unique, and the collection is made by entirely different pieces, each one is signed and numbered.
This way of working with concrete and fabric opens up new horizons in design and architecture, it gives back to concrete its fluid dignity and resets the common idea of it as an hard, squared, geometrical material. By using this method the form is not a limit, rather a territory to explore, as no pre-prepared mould is used in the whole process. The flower pots can be single one, or may come as twin pots, and rising, falling or hanging from a wall. The same technique can be used to create lamp holders, chairs, wall boards or any kind of furniture, for either interior or exterior design.
