Growing up / flowerpot

iF concept design award 2010

The plant continues to grow but the flower-pot does not. So we need to replace the flowerpot with bigger ones as the plant grows. This repeatedly produces the waste.
Can we solve this problem with a flowerpot that grows with the plant? The use of Growing up is very simple. You can insert the flexible sheet into the groove on the bottom plate after rolling to fit the size of the plant.

Imagine an inorganic pot that grows with its organic content. Not only is this entry a very vivid visualisation of a very natural process, it also avoids the waste of having to replace the old pots that have been outgrown by their contents.
