London based design firm Ilex Studio, has created these glass vases that allows you to watch an Avocado plant or an Oak tree grow from a single seed.
Pure and simple design, based on the principles of minimalism, timelessness, and functionality, allows the observation of the avocado seed as it matures, giving an insight into the plants’ first stages of life.
The designers have refined the traditional method of growing, skipping the toothpicks, and utilizing the opening of the vase to cradle the seed, keeping it dry as it sprouts and encouraging the roots to flourish freely.
The sinuously shaped vase magnifies the roots as they prosper, creating a perfect focal point to witness the plant as it develops.
