Planta by Helena Rohner

Planta means plant in Spanish. Spanish-Swiss designer Helena Rohner liked the sound of it, simple and honest. From a desire to lift plants from the ground and display them at different heights grew the idea to create a big wire sculpture, climbing up like a plant. Being a jeweler by profession, Helena experimented with simple brass wire for the first models. The final piece is made of thin, yet strong, iron wire. “For me these structures seem to draw a line in space. The pot holders are open and reflect the tension between space and rigidity. The wires are thin yet solid to lift the pots from the ground. There is three dimensionality to each model: depending on which angle you look from, Planta always looks different, “ Helena explains. The terracotta pots are clean and honest in a funnel type shape to make them light and more elegant. The chosen colours - a warm burgundy and a dark forest green - stand for depth and go very well with plants.
