Handmade Industrials' Diva Impose Planter is tall, extravagant, and outgoing. The diva attracts the spotlight and gets all the attention.
Made of balloon-molded EPS, PU leather, and aluminum sheet metal, this object measures 33.5 x 34.5 x 89 cm. It is a one-of-a-kind.
Dutch designers Rutger de Regt and Marlies van Putten met during their studies at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague. Driven by a shared interest in experimental design and process-based principles, the duo launched Handmade Industrials in 2013. The studio’s work has been widely exhibited at venues like Collective Design NY, Collectible Fair Brussels, Biennale Internationale Design Saint-Etienne, and Ventura Lambrate in Milan. Notably, the duo’s Impose Vessels are part of various Museum collections, including the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Museum, University of Manchester Special Collections, and Museo Sa Bassa Blanca in Mallorca. The studio's work is represented by
