the design labo introduces botanical hangers for your house plants


 

the desire to be close to nature is a fundamental human need but in modern society, contact with the natural world tends to be rather limited. in confronting that reality, tokyo-based the design labo creates the botanical hanger which was born out of the wish to bring something floral and green into the everyday.

the design labo offers a series of iron hangers where one can physically hang any house plant. unlike traditional displays in planters or pots, the botanical hanger allows for a more ‘raw’ design where the roots are completely exposed. this approach indeed portrays flowers or any other ornamental plant in its pure natural state  — instead of being contained — which offers greater soothing effects. as the designers express it, ‘a flower can completely affect the beholder, and make conflict and aggression seem mere folly’.
