Flowerpot Balconia

Challenge
The classic flowerpot may hardly seem a technically improvable object.

A Flowerpot Innovation

Thanks to its linear design, Balconia fits in even the most miniature balconies. Rather than taking up room in diameter, its lean shape allows for minimal crowding. The fixture can be secured on any railing—all without obstructing the view.

Effective Logistics

In our product design quest, we discovered we could save a great deal on emissions and logistical costs just by adjusting the shape of the flowerpot. Our redesign improves logistical efficiency by 25% thanks to better stacking, thus saving both fuel and storage space. The impact is underlined by the fact that the classic flowerpot is mass-produced (online eshop) in the tens of thousands annually.
