Blom is based on the same ideas as Fungi, the stool we presented at the Stockholm furniture fair 2003, where sections are put together into one unit. It is a good way to use and advance the casting technique; the joints between the sections create interesting design opportunities.
I have strived to find an organic form with the character of a shell that associates to fruits or nuts. It has a friendly character to hold back the monumentality of the big volume. Blom is a generous plant pot with good height, coming with or without a base. The pot is intended for the indoors as well as the outdoors. The base allows for rational use of forklift trucks.
