Gallery: Boskke’s Recycled Sky Planters Create a Fantastic Suspended Ga...

 
The designs are a 2011 Red Dot design award winner, made from recycled polypropylene plastic and packaged in recycled cardboard. Complete with the Slo-Flo internal irrigation system the plants receives water directly to its roots, and even has a little water level reminder as well as a mess-free locking disk to hold in the soil.

We’ve covered Boskke’s awesome Sky Planters before, but designer Patrick Morris has just released a new version of the whimsical favorite made from recycled polypropylene plastic! Able to create a dynamic and environmentally friendly hanging garden, these awesome recycled planters can be suspended from the ceiling to give way to an alternative green space.

 

Recently launched at Kew Gardens last month, these innovative designs change the very idea of indoor plants, saving floor room and providing an interesting space to interact and move around the plants. The cool designs won the 2011 Red Dot design award, for its use of recycled materials and its integration of a Slo-Flo internal irrigation system that is able to water the plants directly at their roots. And to make it extra fool-proof for those with less than green thumbs, each plant even has a little water level measure and a mess-free locking disk to hold in the soil.

Great for planting herbs, vegetables, or a variety of beautiful flowers, these planters are an exciting evolutionary step to the typical garden.
