A series of hand-thrown terracotta pots on which functional appendices are installed, suggesting possible gestures and daily care for the plants that inhabit our living spaces.

These additional elements represent attempts to interact with the domestic world of plants, through methods and sensibilities that are typical human acts. Gestures that improve our relationship with plants, and that are important evidence of a new widespread attitude towards nature and of an established awareness of finding ourselves in front of sensitive beings that belong to an “other” world that completes us.

 

 

The Phytophiler products are dveloped by a design collaboration called the Dossofiorito.  The name “Dossofiorito” (flowery mound), comes from an old neon sign salvaged in a dump yard few years back. The unusual name has been enthusiastically adopted by the design duo.
