Designer Ding Liu stretched his imagination to devise this flexible planter or vase that unfolds instantly from flat to a maximum of 12″ to accomodate your growing plant. And it’s lightweight–at .35 pounds it’s great for those who like to rearrange things often move it indoors and out.
It’s designed kind of like those expandable fences used to keep pets and kids out of danger. The frame is made of an ABS injection molded plastic with 1/8″ steel rods holding a PET plastic skin with waterproof coating that’s been heat sealed to prevent leakage.
A Planter That Rises to the Occasion
It’s pretty simple to use: press it flat for storage, then pull it up to whatever size you need.
