Steeped in minimalist Japanese design aesthetics, the 304 series of concrete lamps and planters utilises recycled building materials to craft the unique and architecturally inspired shape. The pendant lamp inspired the designers to create a planter using matching geometric shapes of the collection.
The collection was labelled 304 based upon the corners that each geometric shape has: three, zero and four. This clever and playful naming flows through to the three planters from the collection, as their geometric shape simply mirrors the three pendants from above.
