With variations of small-scale urban gardening on the rise, many products have debuted that give apartment dwellers the opportunity to cultivate their own lush green space. Boskke’s Sky Planter is a particularly interesting one that reconfigures the way we think about plants and the amount (and type) of space needed to arrange them. Much like Woolly Pockets, the Sky Planter maximizes a previously unused space— in this case the ceiling—to create green space within the home. The plant and its soil are contained within the inverted pot by a ceramic collar that locks around the base of the stem. By encouraging a plant to grow directly downward, the Sky Planter gives people the ability to uniquely redefine their domestic space.
