The Pikaplant Jar is the perfect accessory for the black-thumbed gardener, as it never needs watering. The high humidity atmosphere is contained inside the sealed jar, creating a sustainable recycling of air and water. The coffea arabica plant featured in the design is indigenous to Ethiopia’s western highlands, yet the company claims one of the original prototypes in its Amsterdam office for over 12 months.

Also in the Pikaplant family is the Tableau tray, a successfully funded Kickstarter project. A steel base holds three ceramic pots and a water reservoir, creating an open-air and self-watering masterpiece. Pikaplant One is the company’s stunning vertical garden, equipped with a passive irrigation system. The three shelf-high installation uses biomimicry, borrowing from the wet-dry cycle of ground water and trusting the plants to know how much water they need and when.

Pikaplant Jars were located at designjunction at the London Design Festival 2016 this year, in its new King’s Cross location, along with Blackbody’s fierce FIRE RING chandelier.
