Voltasol have the gift of mobility.
Especially designed to move according to the
trajectory of the sun (which explains his
particular inclination) in order to promote
the movement of plants and help them grow better.
The flowerpot has a semi-conical base that
avoids the static nature of conventional
pots, thereby creating a slight movement that
can either be generated spontaneously or else
be induced at will. The simple movement is
created on the axis of the pot.
This slight manipulation of the base that
causes a vertex to emerge from its circular
center facilitates the movement of the plant
and stimulates its growth by multiplying the
amount of sunlight capable of reaching the
roots and leaves. As a result, in opposition
to its conventional predecessor, slight
gestures in any direction within its given
circumference can be generated spontaneously
or be induced by the user at will.
Potted plants are apparently static, so why
not provide them with movement to enable them
to follow the path of the sun, to sway in a
breeze or grow at will?
These ideas generate
a new flowerpot, VoltaSol, a tilted pot that
facilitates the movement of the plant and
stimulates its growth.
Dance with the sun,
sway in a breeze,
move at your own,
grow at will
Handmade with red ceramic from La Bisbal
d'Empordà, Girona (Spain), with a waterproof
treatment. A material that becames specially
important for plant's inside them, as similar
as being in the earth. But also a high
quality product with a long use, as long as
his owner or future generations want it.
Always depending on user carers.
