UFO is a set of planter made up of a series of voluminous yet dynamically designed elements. It comes in three variations that might be combined or used repeatedly and, as such, it allows multiple arrangements to decorate public spaces with plants.

UFO-2 is a two-part asymmetric planter with a capacity of 2000 litres, composed of elements that can be set up in different ways and enable even the plantation of big trees. The 1000 litre capacity UFO-1 is a big planting tub, while the 680 litre UFO-S is a flower box that also works as a seating surface.

A drainage pipe is placed in the bottom of the composing blocks to form a puffer layer.
