Indigenus: architectural planters and magnificent pieces of art
November 08, 20193 min read
PLANTERS CREATED BY DESIGNERS, ARCHITECTS AND ARTISTS
Indigenus creates beautiful, durable, architectural planters. Just like a statement piece of furniture they are functional pieces of art. The original and unique contemporary designs are created in collaboration with leading designers, architects and artists who have a deep appreciation of the scenic quality of creative planting. The designers understand the impact great sculptural planters can have in an architectural site or landscape.
The range can be used indoors and outside, allowing homeowners to introduce greenery inside their homes, in clusters on a patio or within a garden in a way that enhances an interior or landscaping style. Used as a single statement or a larger configuration, Indigenus planters are designed to be versatile in how and where they can be placed.
DEFINING THE WORLD’S FINEST ARCHITECTURAL AND LANDSCAPED SPACES
For landscape designers, interior designers and architects, Indigenus planters are the perfect devices to frame a space, bring it to life or move people in and around. That’s why Indigenus planters can be found in private residences as well as in the world’s leading hotels, resorts and corporate headquarters.
CRAFTED FROM THE HIGHEST-QUALITY MATERIALS AND EXPERTLY CONSTRUCTED
Using top quality materials, the planters are honed by highly skilled artisans with great care and attention to strength, hardiness and finish. Indigenus planters are designed to be lightweight for stress-free transportation and installation. And all the planters come with removable inner linings and water reservoirs for practical plant care indoors or out.
THE TERRA COLLECTION
Terra is a contemporary interpretation of the mid twentieth century genre. The elegantly tapered planters are placed on a solid Iroko leg base to give a sense of lightness and modernity and create an impression of open space. The versatility of the Terra planters allows them to stand well on their own, staggered together in various heights, in a loose cluster, or in a mid-century modern style lining a wall.
THE BHACA COLLECTION
A completely personal and original range of concrete planters, the Bhaca design reflects ceramicist Andile Dyalvane’s connection to his South African Xhosa roots while celebrating his mastery of an elemental material of choice – clay. The designs reflect the Xhosa tradition of cutting or marking skin – hence the name “Bhaca”, the Xhosa word for scarification. Bhaca planters are perfect as sculptural statements in a garden or interior space.
THE TUBER COLLECTION
Created to last generations and weather with character, the mighty Tuber is crafted from African Iroko, a hard timber often used for boatbuilding, flooring and outdoor furniture. As the name implies, the Tuber sits as if it is rooted in the ground. It can be interspersed randomly, bunched as a large centerpiece or grouped in large numbers to create exciting journeys through a vast space.
THE SOMA COLLECTION
With its clean, curvaceous lines and immaculate finishes, the Soma planters have become an iconic part of the Indigenus range. They are inspired by the ‘anchoring presence’ of trees combined with designer’s distinctive rounded sculptural style. The planters can act like pillars punctuating a long vista or provide a shapely antidote to the rigid lines of architecture. They are perfect for solo placement on the ground, in a corner, or on a raised surface, plus they are particularly effective assembled in varying heights.
THE STEEN COLLECTION
As leading architects, Antoni and Truen are known for their uncompromising contemporary design with a philosophy of simplicity, restraint and refinement of materials. For Steen, which means ‘stone’ in Afrikaans, they took their inspiration from the dramatic boulders found on the coastal cliffs around Cape Town. The three sizes work particularly well when grouped together and can be endlessly configured to dramatic effect.
WHY WE LOVE INDIGENUS
Just look at the pictures, do we need to say more? These stunning planters will bring a room or an outdoor space to life. Use them as single accents or in a cluster to define the space. The remarkable and appealing designs allow for a deeper human connection with nature while acting as magnificent art pieces in their own right. This is everything Sarza is about; original design and striking aesthetics, inspired by Africa.
