It only took us a few thousand years to create the efficient flower pot design. Inspired by how sunflowers follow the sunlight, Barcelona-based industrial design company, Studio BAG Disseny, created a flower pot that can roll to face the direction of the sun, giving plants a more efficient way to grow.
Handmade in La Bisbal d’Emporda, Spain, the terracotta pots can whirl by simply moving the base. According to its designers, by adding movement to traditional static pots, it allows the plants to “follow the path of the sun, to sway in a breeze or grow at will.”
