Organic Factory by Giles Belley

I first discovered Giles Belley a few years back when he designed one of the most elegant energy-saving power adapters I've ever seen. Now the innovative French designer is passing back into our orbit with a new line of designs called The Organic Factory.

I first discovered Giles Belley a few years back when he designed one of the most elegant energy-saving power adapters I've ever seen. Now the innovative French designer is passing back into our orbit with a new line of designs called The Organic Factory. The collection features household objects made with organic, biodegradable materials garnered from agricultural waste. The designs embrace the volatile nature of biodegradable materials, using partial decomposition to create a dynamic aspect to each design.

The small "hill" contained within the Colline design is made with biodegradable sunflower hulls. Seeds are stored within it, activated as the pot is watered and the hill decomposes. As the seeds grow into a plant, the hard form of the hill slowly sinks into the soil.
