Screen-Pot by François Clerc for De Castelli

Designed by François Clerc for De Castelli, the Screen-Pot aims to turn the traditional flower pot on its head by completely revamping it. Constructed from steel and then laser cut with a design that’s not only graphic, it was inspired by one of nature’s forms: the leaf.

The screen is more than decorative—it acts as a lattice for your plants to climb. The tall nature of the screen also works well to create privacy. I love how the screen wraps around the pot almost hugging your plant.
