Saturn is a set of modular flower pots, made from cast concrete. It was developed from Tess, a previous classroom project. The goal for revisiting it was to improve functionality and maintain the original design intent while expanding on the concept of modularity.
During the development of Tess, emphasis was put on aesthetics and manufacturability. The result was an attractive form that lacked functionality. The aggressive interior draft and large wall thickness made a large heavy planter that had little holding volume. Additionally, lack of experience with the material, as well as mold making, lead to a product that was difficult to demold. The next iteration of the project took these factors into account to make a more functional and manufacturable product.
