Friday: Design & Co.
Ever thought of hanging your flower pots from the ceiling? Yes, yes, you read that right. Hanging the flowers from the ceiling.. just as if they were lights.
Well.. Boskke thought about that and created it!
It’s called the Sky Planter by Boskke and I really think it is an awesome idea.
The company’s name, Boskke, originates from the old English word bosky which means “a small forest” and this explains quite well the purpose of Boskke’s Sky Planter: it is all about intelligent eco-sensitive designs. Boskke aims at integrating your life more and more with nature at a time in history when we are distancing ourselves with the green and the smell of the outdoors.
The Sky Planter is fun as it defies gravity and allows for more greenery at home and in work spaces, saving space, conserving water, purifying the air, improving our health and simply making our spaces more beautiful.
Interestingly, as explained on Boskke’s webpage, the Sky Planter encourages water conversation as, differently from potted plants which commonly lose water through evaporation and drainage, the Boskke Sky Planter’s unique reservoir feeds water gradually to the plant’s roots. Because there is no excess water to drain away, they can be used indoors, without losing water to evaporation.
On how it works, the Sky Planter is easy to assemble. There is a locking disc and mesh holds the upside down plant and soil in place allowing to hang the Sky Planter.
Boskke on its website also gives a wide range of plants variety which is particularly suitable to the Sky Planter, such as the Anthurium, the Boston Fern, English Ivy, Fennel, Geranium, Orchid, among others. The full list can be found by clicking here.
