Bloccon Watering Can

Check out this small plastic Bloccon (“block” + “icon”) watering can by designer Kazuya Washio. A little Lego-ish, isn’t it? It’s pretty small (350ml), so keep in mind it’s appropriate for house plants rather than a large garden.

Glass Greenhouse

Despite the recent terrarium craze, I still haven’t created or bought one for my own home. This rather affordable easy-on-the-eyes greenhouse is tempting me to finally write it into my to-do list this weekend. It’s nice that it’s so simple and spare, as that allows for the plants to be the main focal point.

Small: 9″sq. x 18″h. $49.00
Large: 24″w x 13″d x 20″h. $169.00

Shift Design Planters

If you’re in the market for some sharp looking planters, take a look at these stainless steel ones by Shift Design.

And, if you want to go all out and cover a wall with plants in stainless steel, there’s a living wall unit that you can line up side by side as your budget allows. See below for details.

Just how great are these terrariums from Assembly New York? A geometric take is certainly refreshing compared to more antiquated versions.

Aldo Bakker’s Copper Collection

Droog presented Aldo Bakker’s Copper Collection at Design Miami/Basel 2010 this year, and as usual, there’s plenty to admire. Made out of liquid copper using the time intensive lost-wax method (French name being cire perdu), this watering can is entirely seamless and has openings that ensure a perfect pour.

The copper mixing bowl (below) allows a reaction with protein, which Chefs recommend apparently, and of course, sits like a sculpture when not in use. The soy pourer is lined inside with 100% fine silver, which makes it perhaps the most elegant (and expensive) modern soy pourer in existence.

All pieces are limited and numbered in editions of 15.
Designed by Aldo Bakker for Thomas Eyck
Collection includes Watering Can, Mixing Bowl, Soy Pourer, Candle Dome
