Playful Planter Sculptures

Plant the Future by Paloma Teppa is Modern and Youthful

— January 21, 2014 — Art & Design
The Plant the Future collection shows that traditional planters and vases are very much stuck in the past. In place of basic geometric shapes, this collection involves playful sculptures of animals and toys that will add a fun artistic spirit to any living space. Although some will deem the Plant the Future collection as very hipster, others will simply appreciate it for introducing a fresh perspective when it comes to such products.

Designed by Paloma Teppa, an industrial designer and artist based in Miami, Florida, the Plant the Future collection is comprised specifically of fibre-glass figurines. Whether used indoors as a centerpiece or outdoors in place of a garden gnome, Trendland points out that it presents "you with the freedom to decide what you plant, which means you can impart your own personal touch."
