We were happy to present this new LED planter at the HD Expo in Vegas. The cool thing about this planter, aside from the LED effects, is that the aluminum “sleeve” can include any design of your choice. And as always, we use recycled aluminum and VOC free standard powder coating. The response was fantastic and we’re excited to start cutting some new designs!
With the bee population dwindling around the globe, Auckland, New Zealand native Rowan Dunford, developed a product to bring beekeeping to urban environments. With bees being critical to the world’s food supply, creating products like the Urban Beehive could help stabilize the problem by easing the beekeeping process.
“The new space sits within ledgelike seating walls made of weathered cedar, and the edge along the street forms a backrest and a protective wall—a wall that in spots doubles as a planter filled with clumps of Mexican feather grass that sways in the stiff ocean wind. Two interior ledges create triangular nooks where people can sit and relax. There are a large water bowl for dogs and a box of chalk for children to decorate the concrete floor.”
This concept is so neat! Cities can easily make you feel without community and as though you are just going through the motions. This is a way to make a place for a people to gather and feel connected, even if just for a quick lunch break.
