Montréal based designers Mohammad Hajikhani and Ashley de Haas have developed a sustainable planter made from post-consumer content. Their circular design planter, pichi is composed of only two materials; recycled PET felt and anodized aluminum, both of which are entirely recyclable. pichi was designed without any seams, adhesives or welds, to create a system that is both streamlined and durable.
The designers wanted the planter to be a sustainable alternative to single-use plastic pots, while also promoting healthier plant development.
With extensive research and prototyping, the designer duo has been able to make the PET felt “cloud” pot from 100% post-consumer content, composed entirely of recycled water bottles, and the frame/ hanger only anodized aluminum.
This planter’s chosen materials are durable, and the parts are made to stand the test of time. They are also interchangeable, so if either of the components wear out after extended use, they can easily be replaced, without the need to replace the entire system.
The crowdfunding on Kickstarter is set to start soon.
