The Manifesto of Phyto-centred Design

An invitation to reframe our relationship with the vegetal realm

from phutón, meaning “plant” in Ancient Greek
An interspecific and holistic design approach that looks at plants as allies and not as mere commodities

Inspired by ongoing initiatives of international designers, engineers, artists, writers and philosophers, The Manifesto of Phyto-centred Design is a call to practitioners and the general public to establish a new sense of respect, responsibility and empathy towards plants.
