With its clean curvaceous lines and immaculate finishes the Soma planters have become an iconic part of the Indigenus range, designed by Laurie Wiid van Heerden. Inspired by the ‘anchoring presence’ of trees combined with the designer’s distinctive rounded sculptural style the Soma planters create a powerful impact on any landscape or interior. The Soma design celebrates the stone-like appearance of reinforced concrete and in various progressions of the design contrasts with organic elements in wood and cork.
