Potted Coaster / Coaster

Potted Coaster
Potted Coaster

Potted Coaster is designed for collecting the water from ice drink cup. While the steam “touchs” the cup of iced beverage, it will start sweat and make the table full of water. To save this problem and improve the working environment, we designed the Potted Coaster witch can gather the extra water and nourish the plant. The plastic holes can make the water drop and the breeze can also come in. Arc plastic bottom let the water flow to the edge and irrigate the plant. This design concept is with the hope that not only can make the table clean but lead the water to good use in an environmental protection.
