Urbanites everywhere; you can now have a garden! However small you may live, there has to be one tiny spot left to create your little vertical garden with this beautiful planter called Nomad.
Nomad is, as his name suggests, a very mobile planter. You can hang it on a wall, place it on a coffee table, or carry it around town on your bike’s handle bar. (Especially useful in case you feel like nibbling on some basil while out on the town!).
The Nomad is one out of two products available from ‘the Garden Apartment‘, a collab between friends and colleague designers, Miriam Josi and Stella Lee Prowse.
When in design school together, they moved into a house which came with a garden.
“The fantasy of having the garden apartment for us meant fresh vegetables and herbs from the garden, chickens and a compost heap. In reality we got as far as the compost heap.”
Even though they didn’t have the time to take up gardening due to their busy lifestyles, it did give them the idea to design a product to help everyone garden.
Nomad is made from reclaimed scrap boat sails and boat covers, all sourced from sailmakers in the Bronx. Double layers of fabric allow for proper drainage, while the sturdy material and large eye-let will give your little garden just the right amount of Côte d’Azur vibe. The planters are handmade in New York and will arrive -very smart- in a flat envelope.
Well done The Garden Apartment, your Nomad definitely deserves Gigot’s stamp of Urban Nomad Approval*!
*’Urban Nomads’ are ‘always on the move’, hence the need for flexibele furniture and home deco that are easy to move! More ideas with the ‘Gigot’s stamp of Urban Nomad approval’ can be found here.
