Design Modernica
Ceramic pottery, brazilian walnut
Made in USA by Modernica

The Case Study Planter design originated during the highly prolific period in architecture and home furnishing designs immediately following WW2. The new designs were not only something new to look at but promoted a new attitude towards incorporating your home with a modern lifestyle.

Pottery that emerged from this post-war period was a radical departure in both form and application. Unlike its predecessors, the new pottery created a portable landscape. These new ceramic objects could be used as a planter and soften the lines of a room, or as a sculptural piece in the garden, thus blurring the lines between exterior and interior spaces. Most importantly, the object itself functioned as a direct reflection of the home owner's aesthetic. It was this combination of the aesthetic purity of Modernism with the idea of good design for all that launched its massive appeal into popular culture.

As an important part of this lineage, Modernica's Case Study Planter is pure and elegant in form. The cylindrical shapes are available in two sizes and in two matt colors: charcoal and white with a Brazilian walnut stand. Planter does not include drain hole.

Modernica’s first official year as a furniture manufacturer came in 1989, after Frank and Jay Novak purchased 12,000 discarded plastic shell chairs and created bases and shock mounts for them. The shells had been discarded by Century Plastics, after Herman Miller discontinued their production of fiberglass chairs. Modernica founded their company on the heels of the North American Modernist movement and perpetuated the idea of the burgeoning modernist California lifestyle.

These are what they appear to be: sturdy, well-made planters. They aren't cheap, but the knock-offs that I have seen are just as expensive and not nearly as nice. Hive's delivery was flawless.
