Moai Ideal for use as a plant pot, Moai is a slender vase with a fluid, minimal form. Crafted from polyethylene through rotational moulding, Moai is available in small and large forms. Its abstract shape echoes the iconic human sculptures of Easter Island. Moai can be painted in several colours with a lacquered or metalised finish. It is suitable for any type of domestic or public space, and both indoor and outdoor environments.
Tambo Tambo is a plant pot that melds the artificial with the organic. Crafted from polyethylene through rotational moulding, Tambo’s glossy, textured surface enables vibrant light play, making the pot seem as if it is in motion. Despite its synthetic material, Tambo’s rounded shape evokes organic forms – the earth, stones, water – and creates the sense that it is growing alongside the plant. It is suitable for any type of domestic or public space, and both indoor and outdoor environments.
