Cobe: Ceramic Plant Pots Inspired by Building Design

Architecture Firm created plant pots designed especially to match one of their building projects.


In 2014, the Danish architecture company Cobe built a kindergarten building in Copenhagen. With its rust covered cladding, it was made to fit into the environment of surrounding brick houses. The kindergarten was developed as a village for children.

Now, Cobe has created a range of plant containers, inspired by the design of the Forfatterhuset kindergarten. Thin, vertical lamellae are found on the building as well as on the plant pots. The vessels are made of ceramics and have Earthenware glaze on the inside. There are three different versions of pots: vase, bowl and flower pot. All of them are stackable.

Cobe developed this limited edition range in collaboration with the Danish design studio Kilo. The ceramic pots have been exhibited at the Danish Architecture Centre.
