All of Opiary’s planters [2] are made from recyclable materials, leaving little impact on the environment. They can be used to plant virtually anything—trees, shrubbery, flowers or edible gardens. The larger organically-shaped planters are all mounted on castors, making it easy to rearrange and redesign your garden on a whim. The planters, from table top to big floor planters, each include irrigation systems, making tending an indoor or outdoor garden of any size a breeze.

Opiary’s self-irrigating table can be used inside or out, bringing a small vegetative garden to the dining table [3]. The garden can support edible herbs for table use, mossy greens for a table terrarium, or flowers for a permanent center piece. The irrigation system stretches within the table’s stand, to sightlessly feed the growing plants. The table top comes in glass, marble or wood, to suit any taste.

Believing that living plants can be used in both form and function, Opiary even makes small planters [4] in surprising places. A rich wood dining table is infused with sprouts of greenery, in tiny planters tucked under the tabletop, allowing ivy and moss to climb up from each table leg.

Opiary’s gorgeous booth full of sculptural planters and  plant-rich furniture was crowned with a glittering light piece- made from waste mesh that the designers collected from the studio floor.
