Epiphytes : Dossofiorito

Epiphytes is a collection of suspended vases in white ceramic, offering an alternative to the potted cultivation of epiphytic houseplants, leaving on sight not only the plant aerial part but also its rootage. With this system, in fact, the plant roots are not contained in the vase, but they envelop it as they would do with a tree branch in the forest. It is possible in this way to observe in full the plant and to admire entirely its growth.


Thanks to the alternation of porous and glazed areas, filing the vase regularly with water will be enough to provide the hosted plant with humidity and water for several days.


In a tropical forests on a single tree is possible to find hundred of different epiphytic plants. In the same way, sustaining several plants with similar light and watering needs, a single vase could give life to a little ecosystem.
