Cracked Footpath Planters
The Force Flower Pot Gives the Illusion that a Seedling Split Cement

The Force Planter embodies an unusual artistic quality when compared to other types of flower pots. Usually you get decoration through form, texture and color, but this piece has a more philosophical message embedded in its unique shape. What Bentu Design created was a concrete block with soil in the center, but it’s top features a continuous surface of the hard industrial material so that the object looks like a solid rock.

Now, the most important detail of the Force Planter is the spiderweb cracking of the concrete from the middle. A broken chip opens it up slightly, letting a fine beam of light inside and allowing a small stem to escape. This is a beautiful and thought-provoking piece that comments on the break between the natural and the artificial environments.
