Designed by Adam Cornish, Monkey Grip is a playful plant pot designed with space-conscious living in mind.
Cornish’s re-interpretation of the traditional hanging basket is expressed as a series of linking flower pots made from 100 percent recyclable polyethylene. The links of the pots pay homage to the children’s game from the 1960s ‘Barrel of Monkeys’, but with the pots designed to hold a weight of over 35kg thy are decidedly more sturdy than their monkey counterparts.
Cornish – who recently won the Herman Miller Asia Pacific Design Competition for his Wooden Hammock design – launched Monkey Grip at this year’s Milan Salone. Monkey Grip was also a runner-up in the 2010 Bombay Sapphire Design Discovery Awards, rewarding emerging Australian designers.
