Carmen Aims to Keep Your Plants Alive for up to 3 Weeks

Catalan design studio Nima Barcelona has launched a new product with the hope of keeping your plants alive for up to three weeks. The Carmen plant pot is designed with a Watair irrigation system that keeps the plant in continuous contact with water and the roots permanently oxygenated. The two-piece pot hides a water tank within allowing you to step away from the plant without the constant need of watering. Whether you have a black thumb or are away traveling, the design-led planter will make everyone think you’ve got it all together.

Along with the practicality of the design, Carmen’s shape takes a different approach than typical pots. The twisted pentagon shape adds a design element giving it a sculptural quality.
