Studio Seven: Displaying plants

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
