Zurich-based Postfossil Design Collective has been capturing our imagination this year with a host of eco-minded ideas that challenge convention. Postfossil designer Annina Gaehwiler‘s Torre plant pot is one such example, and demonstrates a beautiful hands-on approach to plant-rearing. Individual earth filled units are attached to the base of the pot allowing seedlings to grow and flourish with freedom to stretch their roots.

The Torre Pot answers the design collective’s driving question “how will we live in a post-fossil age?’ by making versatility part of the product. Components can be added or removed as needed, making one “pot” fit all plants. The elements can be ordered individually from Gaehwiler’s website with a choice of clays (dark, terracotta or white) with a smooth, lined or raw finish.
