Lately, I’ve noticed that more and more designers are having fun with indoor planters. From miniature pink flamingos for your cacti to “treehouses” for your ficus, decorating your houseplants is definitely big.
Then there are containers that make more of a statement than any terracotta pot could dream of. (Remember the IV plant pot from Vitamin Living?) The newest – and possibly baddest – kid on the block is the Park Planter from Science & Sons.
Drawing inspiration from the bonsai, designer
Tristan Zimmermann created the Park Planter “to
elevate the common household plant to the status of full grown tree.
The potted plant becomes the backdrop for an urban park scene.” Scenes include both the innocuous – dog walkers – and the sketchy – flashers and muggers. No two scenes are alike. Park Planters will be available sometime in spring 2008.

I like the look of this pot but with a little creativity you can turn a plain terra cotta pot into your own piece of art.
What exactly is going on with the figures on this one… er… it rather looks like that dark corner of the park at midnight…
Someone always comes along with something different – these sound cool.
How are you feeling these days?

Jenn – OMG you’re right – that’s an R-rated planter. I guess I should add “dirty” to the list of offerings.
N&J – that’s why I like the treehouse idea. Super fun!

I love this … now this is something that I’d enjoy having. I’m not big on shopping or buying things but this is something that definitely interests me. Thanks for showing us.

egads, I just read the comments and now I see what I didn’t see before … holy cow it really is X-rated. Well so much for wanting one of those! :-)
I wasn’t sure at first if I was really seeing what I thought that I saw, but these comments have confirmed it. I’m not sure if I would want a planter like that, but I did get a good laugh out of it.
