The Scolapianta Dish Rack by Mathery Serves a Dual Purpose

There is a beauty in tweaking existing designs to serve another purpose in addition to its original one; case in point, the Scolapianta Dish Rack. It is a dish tray that has been revamped to be able to water plants as well. This is made possible since it forgoes the use of its front legs. Thus the Scolapianta Dish Rack can be rested on small planters so that the excess water drains into them and is subsequently soaked up by the soil.

Designed by Mathery, a multidisciplinary studio based in Melbourne, Australia, the Scolapianta Dish Rack works particularly well with herbs since they don't require too much water and are small enough to let the tray tilt down. Made out of wood, it also has a nice simple organic aesthetic. Stats for Plant-Watering Dish Trays Trending: Older & Mild
