this hydroponic planter lets you grow plants indoors without soil. ‘terraplanter’ has been designed for urbanites who appreciate plants, but don’t want the maintenance and mess associated with growing them indoors. made from a solid yet porous ceramic material, the planter acts as a water bank that allows water to slowly diffuse through it, allowing the plant to grow on the exterior of the product’s surface.

 

 

 

 

the terraplanter is the creation of eran zarhi, an industrial designer and plant enthusiast, and his partner, eco-entrepreneur elad burko. ‘I’ve had this fascination for nature since I was a child,’ says zarhi. ‘in recent years it has evolved and has attached itself to new interests that I have, branching out into new places. with this project I was able to combine my passion for plants with an expertise in design to create a product I can proudly share with my friends, family, and now the rest of the world.’

the design was informed by nature and the way in which plants grow naturally in the rainforest and other humid environments. here, the roots are exposed, above ground, and cling onto a moist structure with constant access to both water and air. 1,400 cells with a micro-textured surface provide grip for plant roots, which grow into the pattern layout of the planter.

‘our vision to establish cooperation between design and nature was fulfilled with the terraplanter,’ explains the design team. ‘as an ‘inside-out’ planter, there is a transparency which allows users to witness the process of plant growth on the terraplanter’s surface – from seeds sprouting, to roots grasping and growing while looking for water, leaves extending towards the lights, and of course flowers blooming.’ the terraplanter is available for the early bird price of $59 USD on kickstarter ($80 retail), with an estimated delivery date of october 2020.
