Imagined by Ukrainian designer Anastasia Ivanyuk and available from Italian furniture and lighting company Slide, these Gear Pots are planters that look like mechanical spur gears. The large polyethylene (the most commonly used plastic) pots weigh around 13-pounds, measure approximately 22″ x 22″ x 17″, and make the perfect planters for adding a little greenery to your garage or steampunk factory.
Plant Pots are available in twelve different colors to ensure there’s one that will match the rest of your decor, and are 100% recyclable. Although why you’d ever want to recycle one is beyond me because they cost $647 apiece. I assumed when I first saw the price it was for a ten-pack (and even that seemed steep), but no, that’s for a single plastic pot. Clearly, I’m in the wrong business.
So that first image of the two planters with their gears meshed – there’s $1,294 worth of pots in that photo. For reference, that is entirely too much to pay for any pot or gear that can’t save the universe, and even if it could, I’d still question what the universe has done for me lately before reluctantly entering my credit card info.
