Sculptural planters for all environments

Indigenus, founded in 2014, is the brainchild of Cape Town local Peter van der Post. Indigenus’ vision is to create beautiful and original high-design planters.

Indigenus collaborates with the world’s best designers to create planters that illustrate the impact of large-scale sculptural planters on architecture and landscapes. The planters are made with beautiful natural materials, and their close connection to the earth is expressed through a stable and grounded design, which evokes an underlying story of our relationship with the natural world.

Indigenus planters have specifically been designed to be used in beautiful interior settings. The planters are lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. The scale and designs fit with the best interior and exterior furniture and décor available. The drainage systems and soft-touch feet are designed with luxurious carpets and high-end flooring in mind.

As interior and exterior design blurs, Indigenus planters are suited to all environments.

One of Indigenus’s latest installations was done in Gauteng by Hesse Kleinloog Studio and Design CoLab, and it shows how well the Aarde trough, designed by Sebastian Herkner, can be used to create a stylish division of space, and the Bhaca, designed by Andile Dyalvane, is striking indoors.

The planters work best when they are clustered together, as can be seen by the family of Pebble planters, designed by Yabu Pushelberg, at the Norval Foundation.

Indigenus has a showroom in Cape Town for viewing (by appointment only).
