Ancient Architecture-Inspired Vases

Ancient Architecture-Inspired Vases

Babilus is inspired by the architecture of ancient cities, temples and altars, resonating human kind’s aspiration for verticality. As a series, the vessels illustrate an ancient city’s skyline, while each one stands alone as a functional product with a powerful presence that strikes the imagination. The series comes in 4 different sizes: a vase for a single flower, for a bouquet, or for a small plant. Each combines natural materials like bamboo and chipboard with Corean manipulated to resemble stone. Built layer by layer, the resulting character has a raw, rich and vivid texture.

Not Your Mama's Flowerpot

Not Your Mama’s Flowerpot

The Water Recycling Flowerpot makes the rest seem BASIC! Using a unique double-hallow structure, it’s able to recycle the leftover water that remains in the pot after watering. Water is stored inside the inner wall, preventing overwatering yet ensuring hydration. The water inside evaporates and condenses into droplets that fall back to the soil, creating the process of recycled irrigation. Made of crystal-clear glass, it’s fun and easy to see exactly what’s going on inside!

As If Bonsais Couldn’t Be More Beautiful

The Kasokudo Bonsai Planter is a stunning fusion of form and function that’s only made better when it becomes home to a living sculpture.

It implies acceleration but effortlessly floats to house the bonsai, evoking a perfect balance of dynamic harmony. Made to order so hit up the designer for yours!

Cooking Starts In The Garden

Cooking Starts In The Garden

It would be so easy to have your own vegetable patch to source fresh veggies and herbs from. There are two main obstacles though: lack of space and lack of a green thumb. To solve these two issues we have here the “Little Helper’ a cultivation pot with a combining app. The idea behind it is to help us grow and harvest our own vegetables and eat healthier (think GMO and Pesticides). I quite agree!

Grass Printer For Lawnly Creatives

Grass Printer For Lawnly Creatives

Move over dot matrix, because here comes the grass matrix. The Grass Printer is an automated mower that lets you create messages and art on your lawn. The mower’s smaller sized blades (resolution matters!) can selectively cut the grass to recreate whatever you sketch on its touchscreen. Small motors move the cutter shaft horizontally and vertically to create the selective trimming. The area of the art is defined by four sensors placed at each corner. Get one for yourselves and create the mother of all status messages. Of course on grass!
