The Blumenampel hanging basket was designed by Zascho Petkov for Atelier Haussman. It consists of steel tubing and a shell made of PVC, mounted to the ceiling with a hook and rope. The matt black coating is in solvent-free polyester resins. http://atelierhaussmann.de

Plants are a big part of Design House Stockholm’s interior ethos – hence the development of Greenhouse by Atelier 2+. The indoor plant-housing lacquered solid ash structure features panes of tempered safety glass and a planting tray made of galvanized steel. http://designhousestockholm.com/

Greenwork’s Bridge is not only a suspended lamp with downward light distribution good for desk or dining spaces, it also incorporates a planter for greenery above. It is 115cm in width and comes in olive green powder coated aluminum and plexiglass. http://greenworks.eu

Inspired by Picasso’s muse, the Dora Maar Planter is from American brand Jonathan Adler, whose founder began his design life as a potter. The 66cm-high surreal piece is handcrafted from aerated cement and each piece is cast and sanded by hand. http://www.jonathanadler.com

Simple and utilitarian in style, Norm Architect’s Wire plant stands were inspired by a visit to a Japanese garden in Los Angeles. Designed for Danish brand Menu, the powder coated steel frames come as either a 40cm or a 60cm-high version. https://menu.as

Green Pedestals is a collection of indoor furniture to house greenery, designed by Front for fellow Swedish company Offect. Customers can  add a fabric or leather seat or a laminate table top to the elegant white lacquered metal frames. https://www.offecct.com

With a trio of height-adjustable arms, the Shakti Stand by Pib can accommodate plants weighing several kilos. The frame, made entirely from metal, has a slight mid-century feel. With a textured, pearl gold and varnished finish, it is one metre tall. Pib-home.co.uk
