Floating Garden (Hanging Flowerpots) by Gabriella Asztalos
2012 - 2013, Silver A' Furniture and Homeware Design Award Winner
Inspiration
One of my friends is living in a small but modern loft. She always been a big fan of plants but she didn't want to destroy her minimalist interior with ordinary flower pots. She asked me if I could think of an original solution. My goal was to design something which can completely integrate with any modern, minimalist space. Hanging from the ceiling with thin stainless steel strings, the vases seem to be floating in the air, and multiple pots hanging together give the feeling of a small floating green island.
Creativity
These Hanging Flower Pots are floating in the air and thus emphasize space and dimensions in the room because of the 3D effect. It’s a completely new way to decorate your home with living plants and flowers, in a very unique and elegant way. These Hanging Flower Pots are not only functional but also an aesthetic contemporary item of your home. The perfect balance is provided by the combination of the feminine shapes and masculine materials in one minimalistic design. The Floating Garden fits perfectly into any modern interior and it also fulfils nowadays food-lovers' dreams, to grow their own herbs in their modern kitchen in a very decorative way.
Design Challenges
Gabriella Asztalos did not encounter any design challenges while designing the award winning Floating Garden Hanging Flowerpots.
Production Technology
The cone form of the vases been produced on a metal spinning machine with brushed finish. The material of the vases is aluminium. To avoid corrosion we cover the complete body in- and outside with special weather/water resistant lacquer, like this the vases can be used indoor and also outdoor.
