These planters by Boskke are simple and round, black and white – they are almost intentionally generic to emphasize the eccentricity of their inversion.

“You can have a room full of plants but the minute you hang one upside-down, boom: 💥 You’ve done something pretty magical with your space. Remembering to water your plants can weigh on your mind but our Sky Planters have an internal reservoir that will keep your beloved greens hydrated for up to two weeks. We try to design planters that let the plant be the hero… because plants are heroes. The Sky Planter’s simple and classic colors will harmonize with any space while the plant can do the heavy lifting.”

About Boskke

Boskke cofounder and designer, Patrick Morris grew up in rural New Zealand and learned to throw pots from his dad, Anthony Morris. While later attending Central Saint Martin’s in London, Patrick developed the first upside-down planter. It was called Antipode – a fitting name for a planter that basically pointed down to the other side of the earth, a constant reminder of our home.”


We don’t want to greenwash or pretend we are the most sustainable small business because we are not. But, we do use repurposed plastic (scraps from the floor) to make our products and work with a family owned and operated ceramic factory in Sri Lanka. We don’t come out with new products every season “just because” and all new products must be made better.”
