We have seen some amazing concepts in indoor gardening earlier, and the latest with us is the Fogger from the house of VAKANTdesign. Perfect for both indoor and outdoor use, the Fogger is a vertical planter that lets you grow fresh herbs and vegetables all year round. All you need to do is to put the pre-germinated seedlings of fruits and veggies into the pillar with the neoprene plugs. Fill in the tank with water, add organic fertilizer, connect the system to the power source and you are all set to go.
Without doubt, music has a profound effect on our body and mind. Music affects our moods dramatically and can have positive effects on mental health and well-being of both the musician and the listener. The same theory applies to plants and many scientific experiments have been done in the past to study the effect of different types of music on the plants. Inspired by the same notion, designer Yi-Chen Sung has conceptualized a planter that features a built-in speaker in the shape of a chronograph. The project aims to explore the impact of music on the growth of plants inside the pot. The speaker has been designed to look like a flower coming out from the planter.
The Plant Pot Study by Ryosuke Fukusada at Fukusada Design aims at bringing a Japanese household product to Italy with a new take. Born in 1979 in Osaka, Japan, Fukusada moved to Italy in 2007. The project shows how a planter pot that’s widely used in Japanese interior could be transformed to suit the domestic gardens in Italy. In Japan, a plant pot is usually put inside a bamboo basket for display at homes. This bamboo basket has a handle, so that you can move it around with ease. The designer brings the concept to Italy, where the bamboo is replaced with leather, which is synonymous with the Italian interiors.
For years, Swedish design house Nola has been creating award-winning designs for urban spaces and the Willow planter is no exception. Designed by Louise Hederström, the Willow multi-purpose planter has been exhibited at this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair 2012. The inspiration for the planter came from the Willow tree, which has a compact trunk and flexible long branches. There is an opening on the top and the containers for your plants come out like tree branches from the planter.
