Soma Planters

By Laurie Wiid van Heerden for Indigenus

With its clean curvaceous lines and immaculate finishes, the Soma planters have become an iconic part of the Indigenus range.

Inspired by the ‘anchoring presence’ of trees combined with the designer’s distinctive rounded sculptural style, the Soma planters create a powerful impact on any landscape or interior.

The Soma design celebrates the stone-like appearance of reinforced concrete and in various progressions of the design contrasts with organic elements in wood and cork.

The Soma collection, the first collection van Heerden did for Indigenus, is an extremely versatile range. The planters can act like pillars punctuating a long vista or provide a shapely antidote to the rigid lines of architecture.

They are perfect for solo placement on the ground, in a corner, or on a raised surface and are particularly effective assembled in varying heights.

Terra Planters

By Laurie Wiid van Heerden for Indigenus

Terra is a contemporary interpretation of the mid-twentieth century genre.

This well-proportioned range has been designed in van Heerden’s celebrated sublime and subtly curved style, combining the sensuality of pale grey concrete with the warm tones of carved wood.

The elegantly tapered planters are placed on a solid Iroko leg base to give a sense of lightness and modernity and create an impression of open space.

The versatility of the Terra planters allows them to stand well on their own, staggered together in various heights, in a loose cluster, or in a mid-century modern style lining a wall.

Angled Cork Planters

The Angled Cork Planter Collection incorporates light or dark facade cork with patinated stainless steel.

The idea was to create a contemporary planter that explores the relationship between texture, colour and proportion in a planter that can accommodate small trees or large plants.  The planter was designed out of a passion for the anatomy of plants and mimics the cross section of a tree and how cork is found in its natural state as bark. 

Creating a cut-out of the cork allowed me to showcase the quality, thickness and unique characteristics of the material whilst accentuating the patinated stainless steel tubes.

While the planters are made from 100% recyclable cork, they all contain patinated stainless steel inner tubes that are self-contained with a liner.

Only the dark grade cork is suitable for outdoor use.
