Things we love, the Antipode Planter by Morris Design Office from New Zealand:

Product Details: The Antipode Planter is an easy to use, elegant planter which literally turns the conventions of gardening on their head. This product won the UK New Designers Award in 2006 in recognition of its innovation and is already making waves in the design world internationally. Award-winning, New Zealand-raised designers Jake and Patrick Morris value the natural world and its conservation as much as they strive for the betterment of human environments. The Antipode Planter is an example of their sustainable ethos in practice internationally. It uses 90% less water than a conventional planter, while also designed for ease of use and liberation of space in increasingly smaller, modern homes. Respect and integrity are the twin pillars of Morris Design Office design principles. Respect for the environment, materials and the people who bring Morris Design Office products into their homes, and integrity of concept and purpose.- from Morris
