Coloniae by JCP Universe

BRAND JCP Universe
DESIGNER Gionata Gatto
Coloniae is a collection of artifacts by JCP Universe designed by Gionata Gatto about the relationship between man and plant. The items in the series are conceived as dwellings for a colony, and as such are created with a predefined form. However, each structure is designed to interact with the plant it houses, allowing it to grow over it, redefining its appearance. Over time, the plant will begin to interact with the object through its roots and leaves, eventually colonising it. In this way, Coloniae rethinks the vase (and other complementary artifacts) as content rather than container, and the plants as agents in the definition of a hybrid organism co-participated by human action.
