François Clerc for De Castelli: Screen-PotPosted: November 2, 2011
The Screen-Pot from François Clerc reaches a lovely aesthetic solution, satisfies a functional need, and ties in a conceptual element all within one design. The line work not only mimics the veins of the leaf but also serves to support that for which the design is intended: the plant. And the minimal approach to the “drawing ” of those lines feels appropriately modern: clean & pure yet subtly decorative. More from the designer below.
From Clerc: Screen-Pot is a restyling of the classical flower pot with grates for climbing plants. Thanks to the use of steel and laser cutting, this design has a graphic effect inspired by natural forms. Ideal as a divider, Screen-Pot provides a vegetal and portable shield, giving privacy and protection from the wind.
