Concept

CATHERINE is a plant pot made from a single piece of UHPC concrete with a volume capacity of 1,240 litres. Its asymmetric shape reveals its femininity in the form of a prominent abdomen fertilised with new life, in this case, a plant of average height.

In Truffaut’s film “Jules et Jim”, Catherine is the feminine character, with a balanced and perfect beauty, who is involved in a love triangle with Jules and Jim. The three plant pot models christened with this mythical name were installed in the public area of the Glorias Shopping Mall in Barcelona, in the hope that they will live together in harmony, sharing the public area for decades, just like the characters in the famous film that served to inspire their creator.

Made from a single piece of UHPC concrete. etched and waterproofed finish in the Escofet catalogue standard chart colour. Inner waterproofing coating breathable and flexible

It simply rests on the paving, with no need for anchors. Drainage is carried out through the opening hidden in the base with a diameter of 36 cm, without the need for any other outlets.
