What we are looking for

Euro3plast is looking for a family of plastic cachepots for indoor use. The pot cover is a piece of furniture designed to contain standard cultivation pots, which are filled with earth and in which the plant grows. It is therefore a product that aims to improve the general aesthetics of the plant + pot system.
The family of pot covers must be characterized by innovative elements mainly of an aesthetic type (thus working on shapes, textures, finishes, colors, etc.) and possibly of a functional type (thus adding a secondary functionality to the product). The product must be extremely affordable to the public. Hence, the addition of electronics or other mechanical elements to the product is not allowed.


For the correct realisation of your proposals, please take into consideration the following guidelines:

Product typology
You are invited to design a family of pot covers of different sizes (at least 3) consistent with each other in terms of style. The pot cover, unlike the cultivation pot, does not have holes on the bottom, but a single upper opening in which the cultivation pot and the plant are inserted. The search for new aesthetic solutions is a priority, through the choice of new shapes, the application of textures on the external surface, the use of particular finishes or subsequent surface treatments, the choice of plastics with innovative characteristics, etc ...
In addition, it is possible to provide formal solutions capable of adding new features suitable for the indoor context, to the single product or to the entire collection (for example, by devising ways for the elements to interact with each other).

Style and colours
The requested style is simple and modern, characterized by formal elegance and aesthetic innovation. There are no particular constraints relating to the shape (circular, square, etc.) and to the colors that the family of plant pots can have.
It is possible to place the “Euro3plast” logo on a visible surface of the pot covers. Find the logo in the material files that can be downloaded from the contest page.

The pot covers must have a diameter between 12 and 25 centimeters. The height will have to increase in proportion to the diameter, completely covering the standard cultivation pots that will be inserted inside them.
In designing and sizing the pot covers it is therefore necessary to take into consideration the dimensions of the main types of standard cultivation pots, whose approximate dimensions are:

● 10.5 cm diameter x 9 cm height
● 12 cm diameter x 11 cm height
● 14 cm diameter x 13 cm height
● 16 cm diameter x 15 cm height

Materials and production technologies
The pot covers will be produced in plastic (eg: polypropylene, polycarbonate, etc.) by injection molding.

Context of use
The family of plant pot covers will be inserted in indoor contexts, in particular it will be destined for the furnishing of homes, offices and shops.

Upload detailed descriptions and a series of images to best present your projects. The images visible in the gallery (maximum 5) must have an aspect ratio of 4:3; accepted file formats: .jpg, .gif or .png; color mode: RGB; maximum single file size: 1MB. During the upload phase of the project, you are invited to upload a .zip archive containing the 3D files and high-resolution images of the proposals via the dedicated field. Maximum size of the .zip file: 100MB
