When I spotted these colorful modular vertical planter systems at the Independent Garden Centers show, they reminded me of Uten.Silo, the classic 1969 wall storage containers designed for Vitra by Dorothee Becker. Their design cousin, Bellavaz, are modular self-watering planters with which one can get creative, arranging them in various patterns and shapes.
Available in 24×12 or 24×18 and in 10 bright colors, Ballavaz are made of recycled HDPE plastic so they are happy indoors or outdoors.
We love double duty products: the Ballavaz Luxe is a light up version that illuminates while also functioning as a planter.
Assemble them as you like then go crazy growing herbs, small vegetables, flowers–or a combination of all of these.
