Having plants is a nice idea – they look good, add to people’s mental well-being and make good therapists. But plants can be difficult, turning brown and withering if they don’t receive enough love and attention. Italian design studio Dossofiorito created a set of terracotta pots called The Phytophiler which shows all sides of a plant, to encourage greater care and appreciation.

Presented at Milan Design Week, at the Salone Satellite 2014 exhibition, The Phytophiler is made of up of a series of handthrown plant pots that have been rigged with carefully placed mirrors and magnifying glasses. The mirrors show the plants from different angles while the magnifying glass encourages a closer examination of the living organism.

The series is intended to evoke contemplation and ‘an awareness of of sensitive beings that belong to an “other” world, [which] completes us,’ says the studio on their project page.
