Independent London-based design studio Another Studio’s enthusiasm is in making “charming products that respond to you and your environmentâ€or as they coined it: “gifts for thoughtful givers.
One of their latest creations is “Pantini, a metal planthouse kit inspired by the ornate quality of Victorian art and architecture. Another Studio collaborated with Finch & Fouracre in Glasgow, which specializes in modelmaking and design. The kit consists of a flat-packed etched planthouse, instructions, a planting pot, compost disc and viola seeds.
In addition to the use of stainless steel, the charm is also reflected in Pantini’s scale which, with its removable canopy, stands at 9.5 cm.
Victorian wallpaper often displayed floral patterns. Such a pattern embodies Pantini. Small. Shiny. And conducive to sunlight.
