Flower lovers know that some plants involuntarily follow the direction of sunlight and they need to be careful in rotating the pot on a regular basis to prevent their plant from getting lopsided.
In order to promote the movement of plants and help them grow better, Barcelona-based industrial design firm Studio BAG Dissney has created an innovative flowerpot that moves according to the trajectory of the sun.
Voltasol, as the product was named, has a semi-conical base which allows it to lean and sway with the elements. The slight movement can either be generated spontaneously or else be induced at will. The swaying flowerpot is handmade with red ceramic sourced from the La Bisbal d’Emporda region of Spain. It is available with 5 different brightly-painted bottoms that fit every interior.
Voltasol design was awarded the prestigious “Red Dot Design Award” for 2015.
