snøhetta's terra is a plant accessory series in terracota & stainless steel for georg jensen

snøhetta has unveiled a new collaboration with world-renowned danish design brand georg jensen. dubbed terra, the collaboration consists of an innovative nine-piece plant accessory series crafted in terracotta and stainless steel. referencing the undulating waves and reflective flow of water, as well as the contemplative forms found in nature, the set contrast the earthy and organic forms of the terracotta with the cool and sleek feel of stainless steel.

‘the idea behind the collection was to create a world of plants, derived from the logic of nature,’ says marius myking, director of product design at snøhetta.the planters are deliberately reflected–upside down, if you will – giving the plant the opportunity to take root the same way that it does in nature. moreover, several of the pots are made from terracotta – a type of soil.’

snøhetta’s terra collection for georg jensen has been created for both indoor and outdoor use. featuring planters in both terracotta and stainless steel in different sizes, the set also sees a tray and a watering can with distinctive rounded shapes reinventing these objects as we know them. overall, the collection boasts a contemporary and urban aesthetic ideal for the modern home gardener. the pieces, which can be used as stand-alone sculptures, also make a statement when gathered together.

‘terra continues a tradition of challenging ourselves with the combination of metals and other materials,’ says georg jensen chief creative officer, nicholas manville. ‘georg jensen himself was a ceramicist before he founded the company. in a way, sculpting bold, metal pieces with a ceramicist’s eye has been at the core of our design approach for over a century. it is exceptional to see the materials living together in one collection.’
