Concrescence Concrete Planters by Vakodesign

View all 10 Photos

Designer Vakhtangi Darjania of Iowa-based vakodesign draws a great deal of inspiration from his native home of Tbillsi, Georgia, where mass-produced, widespread Socialist Architecture dominates; a single, reduced design could be adjusted according to the demands of the building to save both time and materials. He brilliantly applies this efficient, brutalist approach through his work, like these humble “Concrescence” Planters.

Made from a poured cement-sand mix and birch plywood, these geometric pots have no frills attached – rather, they retain a charming character of raw simplicity that speaks for itself. Three different sizes – 3”, 5”, and 8” – allow a variety of combinations between planter and base so you can play with height and form. Cut with a CNC router, the ½” thick wooden base can easily be assembled by hand, free of tools or hardware. While the cleverly-named planters are intended for use in an interior space, elevated to protect the surface of a table or floor, Concrescence would look just as good on the patio, porch, or window sill. A showcase of efficiency reveals the beautiful simplicity that lies behind the use of raw materials and a straightforward process; Darjania’s unique approach proves that, sometimes, less is more.

While she works on her BFA in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), she spends her (rare) spare time riding around Providence on her trusty Cannondale and drinking lots of coffee. She is especially fascinated by the dichotomy between aesthetic form and function, which has an immense influence on her work. As a lover of the natural world, Lizzie plans to focus on Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies to pursue a more efficient future for design. Read more by visiting her website
