Tiny Vessel Competition

In celebration of Earth Day 2017 and in conjunction with the firm’s Health + Wellness program, SFS hosted its first-ever TINY VESSEL design competition. Staff were provided a tiny air plant and charged to design a vessel for the plant no bigger than 4” wide x 6” long; there were no height, material or fabrication restrictions. Votes cast by the staff determined the winners. Plants in the workplace have been found to reduce stress; increase productivity; reduce sickness and absenteeism; enhance the beauty of the workspace; provide cleaner air to breathe; reduce noise; and increase creativity; among other benefits.
