Zero-Gravity Greenery

The common houseplant is common no more. Making possible infinite moments of futuristic zen, Simon Morris's geodesic planter floats—and that is not just a figure of speech. The modernist white plant pot literally hovers above its handsome, sustainably sourced oak base, slowly twirling in mesmerizing suspension. Morris, whose father was a botanist, created this hypnotic design using the natural properties of magnets and electrical current to magical effect. Ideal for air plants, which don't need soil, the pot can also hold up to .5 lbs, for plants that do require a bit of earth to thrive. The wizardry that keeps the pot afloat also makes it rotate, giving the plant equal sun on all sides. A cleverly designed, hidden inner reservoir protects plant roots from overwatering. Designed in Sweden. Made in China.

At 16, American-born, Stockholm-based designer Simon Morris dreamed of having a hoverboard. He began experimenting with magnet prototypes, eventually building a hoverboard 15 years later that floated (even if he was unable to ride it). "Although I thought levitation was cool, I began experimenting on how this technology could be developed further and combined with wireless power based on Nikola Tesla’s experiments," he says. "Suspension [of objects]… has a direct relation to the suspension of belief. It references the floating sensation we feel while dreaming, or our childhood fantasies of magic carpet rides." Now an installation artist and inventor, Simon has turned floating things in space into a beautiful profession. His co-workers have nicknamed him "Magneto," for the X-Men character whose superpower is levitation.
