‘plant pot’ by german designer uli budde is a reinterpretation of the traditional flowerpot and saucer. by merging the pot and saucer into one, the watering process is made more efficient as a larger quantity of water can be poured into its side extension. in doing so, plants can absorb water when it is needed.

‘plant pot’ was part of ‘my bauhaus is better than yours‘, a group exhibition of young designers from germany during milan design week 2010.
