Modern Planters: Ikebana & Aqueduct
If you think that gardening is boring you would change your mind once you see these beautiful contemporary planters. This time the planters are inspired by two different ideas, one by an ancient Japanese flower art – Ikebana and another by the use of an aqueduct system. Both planter collections are more than just for planting or displaying plants, they are pieces of art and one of them is being displayed at the most prestigious design exhibitions.
Planters Inspired By Ikebana Art & Aqueduct System
Toko&Nama Ikebana Bowls
Soe Cup and Toko & Noma Ikebana Bowls
The name already speaks for itself, doesn’t it? The Soe Cup and Toko & Noma Ikebana bowls is a collection of beautiful planters designed by Hanna Kruse. The elegant pieces are made from ceramics, steel and copper wire making an eternal combination of a still object manifestation of ancient Japanese tradition: Ikebana.
The cups and bowls provide flexible support for the plants and flowers, without holding them firmly in the soil. This collection has been displayed during an annual Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan.
Aqueduct Modular Planters
Aqueduct Mini Planter System by Evan Gant
Aqueduct modular mini planter collection is designed by Evan Gant. It is a 3D-printed planter collection that allows a lot of different configurations. As you can see the water is transferred through tubes that run from one planter to another sustaining the wellbeing of a plant.
Of course you can’t grow any large plant in this planter system, only succulents, and greenery that requires little soil and is easy to maintain. The system can be bought at a price of $75, which is a lot considering the miniscule size of the planter system. However, the 3D design does ring a bell to most people as being something new in the world dominated by technology.
