Desk Top Pot



Desk Top Pot

Designed by The Fortynine Studio

Made by hand at The Fortynine Studio workshop in Sydney, Australia using local terracotta clay





Available through The Fortynine Studio Online Store



The Desk Top Pot is a range of indoor pots that draws on the beauty of plants and the simplicity of natural materials. The pots are bold and animated in character, bringing life to any indoor space.

The design emerged from the problem of keeping indoor plants well-watered, healthy and happy; without worrying about water leaks, condensation, or the constant rotation and moving of pots.

We really want people to be close to nature in their everyday lives, both at work and at home. The pot encourages a strong connection to nature through both the plants, and the use of raw, earthy terracotta in making the pot.

The pots are made to neatly fit a standard 140mm plastic pot available from any nursery. This allows the plants to easily be swapped out and changed when needed. The feet allow airflow under the pot so there is no build-up of condensation, making the pots safe for any surface. The pots are glazed internally to ensure they are watertight. Each pot is hand decorated with slip in various patterns, giving each its own unique character.

The pots use clay from Western Sydney and are once-fired using solar power to minimise their environmental impact.

No matter whether you are in the office or at home, you can always have a plant close by with the new Desk Top Pot range from The Fortynine Studio.

Desk Top Pots are available in 3 styles; single, double and hanging.
