Jorge Diego Etienne’s Modern Mesh ‘First Object’ Planters are Perfect for Summer Gardening
Posted By Helen Morgan On June 5, 2012 @ 2:31 pm In Botanical,Gardening,Green Products | No Comments
Industrial designer (and occasional Inhabitat contributor) Jorge Diego Etienne  recently teamed up with Savvy Studio  to launch a beautiful set of planters  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  planters were made in collaboration with Savvy Studio  as part of their Casa Bosques initiative. The team worked with local artisans through the Mexican non-profit Innovando la Tradición , which helps support traditional clay pottery. Take a look at this beautiful video  they made about the process. This is just the first in a series of collaborations between the designers – stay tuned for more!
