Plant pot by Uli Budde



Young German designer Uli Budde has designed a plant pot with a built-in saucer.


Presented at DMY Allstars in Berlin earlier this year, the terracotta pot features an extended tray at the base to catch excess water, which can be absorbed by the plant as needed.

Here's a little text from Budde:


A re-interpretation of the traditional combination of flower pot and saucer in one product. Simplifying the external watering through a simple formal intervention leading to an extension - while formally referring to a flower pot with a saucer. A bigger amount of water can be poured into the extension opening of the pot, which can be absorbed by the plant whenever needed.

    unbelievable it hasn’t been thought of before, a clever resolved design.

    Seriously don’t think it’s a practical solution. The permanent attachment of the saucer to the pot with excess water is an invitation for mosquitoes breeding. Why the saucer is detachable is to allow for disposal of excess water in the first place.

  • Looks great & practical. wonder will low budget peeps can afford^
