Riihitie Plant Pot by Artek


▲ Finnish architect and pioneer of Scandinavi­an design Aino Aalto created this plant pot for the terrace of the home she built with her architect husband, Alvar, on Helsinki’s Riihitie Road. Crafted in ceramic, the pot displays a curved, organic shape. Although it was featured at the 1937 Paris World’s Fair, it never went into serial production. Artek, the design company Aino and Alvar founded in 1935, has reinterpre­ted the design in three sizes for indoor use. The Riihitie Plant Pot is available in a range of colours referencin­g bespoke ceramic tiles created for Aalto buildings.
