the botanical dividers encourage plants to ascend upon their stainless steel frames. three of helen kontouris‘ versatile designs, ready to bring the rejuvenating benefits of nature to any urban environment, resemble the skeletal structure of a leaf.

the planter screens are constructed with bases in lightweight aluminium and designed with modularity in mind. hidden castor wheels allow for easy manoeuvrability and allow people the freedom of choice to play with shapes, curves and angles within a space.

‘acacia’, a design both squared and angled acts like a tree, allowing a plant to climb it’s trunk and expand across its branches.

 

 

unlike more complex ‘green walls’ and vertical gardens, each botanical planter screen functions in the same way as a single, self-watering planter pot – keeping ongoing maintenance to a minimum. as dividers for decorative purposes and as dividers in domestic environments, screens can be used for hospitality purposes, such as directional wayfinders in restaurants, cafes and foyers
