Sprout is a set of vases designed for regrowing vegetables at home

A lot of the food we consume we take for granted. We as a society have to some extent lost touch with the work that goes into sustaining our daily life. Where does the fruit I eat come from? What are the animals I eat fed? How are the vegetables I eat grown? Sprout aims to raise the question about how the products we consume are produced.

Most of the vegetables we buy can easily be regrown from the stump, however most people throw it away. Sprout is a set of vases especially designed for regrowing. By taking something that would usually have been thrown away and giving it new life, the designer hopes that the user will learn something about themselves and the products they depend on.
