MOBIPLANT - A POT SYSTEM
Statement
The miracle of growth on your window-sill: the seed germinates, a seed leaf rises from the soil, the seedling becomes a plant. Mobiplant is a self-watering pot for both indoor and outdoor use. Easy to attach to each other, the pots can be used to build an entire small garden on your balcony. Mobiplant allows you to grow many different plants in a small space, but it also leaves room for you to enjoy your plants.  The outer shell of Mobiplant is made of Durat, a material developed in Finland. Its durability makes it an ideal material for difficult conditions and interior decoration. Durat not only looks good, it is recyclable, and thus supports sustainable development.
Biography
Jonas Englund graduated as a furniture designer from the Lahti Institute of Design in 2005. In spring 2007, he will graduate with an M.A. from the School of Design at the University of Art and Design Helsinki. On the basis of his studies, Englund defines himself as a designer of objects. Alongside his studies, he has worked with Iittala in product development and designed interiors for the company. He is very keen on new materials and techniques. His style is simple and his designs strongly emphasise the intended use of the objects. He feels that an object that functions impeccably is intrinsically beautiful.
