Industrial designer (and occasional Inhabitat contributor) Jorge Diego Etienne [1] recently teamed up with Savvy Studio [2] to launch a beautiful set of planters [3] that offer a practical and simple way to bring nature into your home during the summer months. Jorge’s First Object planters mix tradition with modernism by combining a handcrafted clay pot produced in Oaxaca, Mexico with a functional metal stand produced in local industrial workshops in Monterrey.

Jorge’s First Object [4] planters were made in collaboration with Savvy Studio [2] as part of their Casa Bosques initiative. The team worked with local artisans through the Mexican non-profit Innovando la Tradición [5], which helps support traditional clay pottery. Take a look at this beautiful video [6] they made about the process. This is just the first in a series of collaborations between the designers – stay tuned for more!
