Re-thinking the Potted Epiphytes

Dossofiorito a Verona based design collaboration founded by Livia Rossi and Gianluca Giabardo work to achieve a more comprehensive approach to their design practice. Their latest project, Epiphytes by Dossofiorito, is a collection of suspended in white ceramic vases.

This project offers an alternative to the potted cultivation of epiphytic houseplants. Here the roots are not contained in the vase, rather wrap around its container as they would a branch in the forest. Epiphytes invites the questioning of indoor nature and encourages a more respectful approach to the needs of the plant. The vases are made of porous and glazed ceramic, stainless steel and cork.
