Reflecting on his own position as urban based designer after the Designing Craft Crafting Design workshop in Bregenzerwald, Drew Richards has designed an intervention into domestic urban living spaces. The stainless steel planter aims to reflect the connection between nature and industry found in the region.
The modular metal form has an interchangeable structure, which is determined either by the type or age of the plant, as well as the personal choice of the user. This is a relatively small iteration of the modular design that has the potential to become a much larger structure. This piece aims to create an environment — rather than being a stand alone object in itself — forming an ecosystem of organic and non–organic components.
Although the cylinders appear clean and uniform, they are bespoke made vessels, which showcase the skill involved in Felder Metallhandwerk’s production in their detailing and simplicity.
