The World’s Most Stylish Orchid Pot

Erin Boyle October 10, 2013

Good design should always be about solving a problem. In the case of the traditional orchid pot, the problem for designers at Yang:Ripol, was the ubiquitous bamboo stake + plastic hair-clip contraption used to support the plant’s tall stem. Orchids need to be propped up, but the designers figured this could be done without taking away from the beauty of the plant itself. 

Above:  In their re-imagined orchid pot, the human-made and natural elements are separated from each other, allowing the orchid to take center stage. As it should. The removable plant support is fully adjustable to accommodate an orchid as it grows.

Above: The powder-coated plant hook slides up and down or side to side along the pot’s central stake. 

The Yang:Ripol Orchid Pot was designed as a prototype and isn’t in production yet, but designer Claudio Ripol let us know they’re quietly looking for a manufacturer. We’re waiting with bated breath.
