The very first collaboration with Norwegian design and architecture studio Snøhetta, the collection includes plant pots in various sizes with a watering can and globe.
Terracotta introduces itself as a material not so familiar to the brand’s identity but continues its love of organic, sculptural design. I like the simple steel logo plate on the front of each pot which can be used for both indoors and out – ideal for balconies and urban garden spaces. There’s always a few pots I bring out for summer that need to come in during the winter months.
It’s interesting to see the use of their classic mirror-polished steel in a pot and the way it lifts and reflects the green of the leaves, don’t you agree? I’ve used the tray with pots as a herb planter for the kitchen and the contrast between raw, matt terracotta and polished steel adds texture to the space it sits in.
Cleverly, and perhaps a sign of Snøhetta’s skill for architectural design, each pot is wider at the base and tapered towards the top. This gives the plant’s root ball more space to establish itself. I think this leafy ficus, a new addition to our home, will be quite happy in the large terracotta pot.
The Reversible Planters (not pictured) are an ingenious way to extend the use of one pot – starting by planting a smaller plant at the tapered end, flipping it over to replant it at the wider end as it needs more room to grow.
Watering cans have come a long way since the Millennial trend for houseplants began, too. What you’d think is a striking piece of sculpture is actually meant for watering with, blending seamlessly with the rest of the house until it’s needed again.
This collection gets a green-fingered thumbs up from me but tell me, what do you think? To find out more about the collection, find the TERRA collection here. Launched during Copenhagen’s 3 Days of Design 2020.
