The two young Swiss designers Tina Stieger and Annina Gähwiler – together they founded their studio Pour les Alpes – are currently presenting their newest piece at this year’s DMY Berlin and underline their affinity to hand-crafted processing and rural aesthetics: ‘Kristall’ a plant pot made from oak tree was inspired by the mountain crystal: “arisen from the depths of nature, legendary stories of its discovery and sculptural in its appearance.”

“As part of the sculpture the plants grow out of a crack which runs along the faceted shape”, the designers explain.
