Podi is a modular planter designed to enhance urban living spaces through customization and sustainable materiality. Inspired by the dynamic needs of contemporary living, users can create individual planting installations to suit their needs.
Made from PPC cement, each pod can be easily cast using the same mould, functioning alone or as an overall wall system. Podi symbolizes the renaissance of a commonly utilitarian material, cement, into a contemporary and dynamic planting system for urban living.
Identical in size to the iconic subway tile, Podi is a 3-dimensional planter that exists in seamless conjunction with standard tiles, allowing users to customize their walls with cascading greenery and fresh herbs.
Each unit has a draining hole, allowing water to trickle down from one planter to another, dispersing water evenly to the roots (not displayed in single prototype). Inspired by the curves of a seed pod, the aesthetic signifies continuity and flow.
This modular system allows users to build their own planting installations inside and outside of the home.
