Bellissimo progetto presentato dallo studio Dossofiorito in occasione del Salone Satellite 2015.
Le Epifiti sono tutte quelle piante che in natura, invece di radicarsi nel suolo, crescono sui rami o sule foglie di altre piante, usandoli come supporto per la loro crescita.
Il progetto Epiphytes invita a ripensare il rapporto con la natura negli spazi interni, rispettando il naturale benessere della pianta. Epiphytes è una collezione di vasi sospesi in ceramica bianca, che non solo lasciano a vista la parte aerea della pianta ma anche le sue radici. Con questo sistema infatti, le radici non sono contenute nel vaso ma lo avvolgono come con un ramo. E’ possibile in questo modo ammirare in pienezza la pianta e la sua crescita naturale.

“The project Epiphytes invites to rethink the relationship with indoor nature in terms of a cohabitation more respectful and attentive to the needs of the plant. It, although domesticated, can be free to express itself in its natural bearing.

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.”
