Where the Cantaloupe Rome

Nature meets industrial meets nature again in this fresh planter from designers Chen Chen and Kai Williams. Each one is hand-cast from an actual, individual cantaloupe, giving them one-of-a-kind variations in shape and texture. And they’re made using a special formulation of cement, creating a subtle shade of green and a soft, matte finish. Fill the inner bowl with soil, and it makes a unique setting for succulents, cat grass and other small plants. It offers a sweet little taste of nature on your desk, window sill, kitchen counter, or any spot in your home or office that’s hungry for a decorative nibble. Handmade in Brooklyn, New York.

Chen Chen and Kai Williams met while studying industrial design at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Upon graduating, Chen began working for Moss, Williams for artist Tom Sachs. Eventually in 2011 Chen and Williams decided to begin a lasting collaboration through founding a design studio.
