Asphalt plant pot / plant pot

Asphalt plant pot

I hope that people could be inspired with my design; think more about the environment we live, the relationship between human and nature.The decreasing of forest is just one of the warnings, which comes expressing my design concept.

Asphaltic ground is a residual product of technological life. It gestates the development of human being, but replaces the earth of the original nature. Asphaltic ground is almost lifeless. I think it is meaningful to combine asphalt with earth. Plant pot is the simplest way to join the conservation of nature.

I designed a shovel to let users instinctively break the asphalt which covering the pot to help plant growing, and then, try to inspire users to think the meaning behind the product through interactive processes.
