About this project

INVENTIVE DESIGN

The Design of the Plant Pod seeks to pay tribute to Mid-Century Modernism and Scandinavian design, but at the same time is very unique and inventive.

The creation of the product incorporates traditional craftsmanship with modern production technologies and techniques.

After 2 years of continuously evolving the product, Domenic Fiorello is going to use this Kickstarter campaign to begin producing new & improved Plant Pods.  For the first time, he will be able to sell them directly to buyers like you. The previous versions were only produced for resellers in very small quantities. The indirect distribution and small production caused the original plant pods to have a premium price, which was out of reach for many people. 

This Kickstarter will allow Domenic to cut out the middlemen and bring the improved Plant Pods to a much higher production. As a result, he will offer the revamped Plant Pods for half of their original price! 

The new Plant Pods will maintain their signature floating-effect form and will be just as easy to put up on your wall. The subtle redesign will allow the weight of the pods to be distributed more evenly into the wall, making their attachment to the wall even sturdier. 

Two Years of Improvements = Quality Perfection

Since Domenic designed and built the first Plant Pod two years ago, he’s been consistently creating small-batch orders for 3rd party furniture & design retailers.

Naturally, Domenic has been perfecting the production and fulfilment process the entire time. This experience has led him to find the perfect manufacturing partners that have shown that they can meet his high standards of quality.  The resulting pods will be created with the exact attention to detail that Dom used to build his own first batches.

Ready for Production

Domenic’s manufacturing partners are ready to start production, and have vowed that they can meet any demand that comes their way, even if it is much larger than his Kickstarter goal.

The Fruit of Hard Work and Many, Many Hours

The Plant Pods you see today are the result of months of concepting, sketching, and building out prototypes. Domenic crafted many iterations and experimented with a lot of different directions. It took meticulous work to get the Plant Pods to the simplicity and elegance they have today. We are proud to be able to share them with you.

Beautiful Maintenance-Free Plants for Your Space

Cactus and succulents are very resilient and beautiful plants that require very little maintenance compared to other plants. There's so many colors and diversity among them that its exciting to pick just the right one for you.  A few squirts from a spray bottle once a week is all you need.  For more information see the FAQ section.

Free Shipping On All Domestic Orders

Plant Pods are high quality and have a good weight to them.  Because of this shipping them isn't cheap.  In this Kickstarter we are covering all shipping expenses which is a savings up about $10 per Pod directly to you.

Risks and challenges

Domenic has a trusted US Manufacturer selected to start production as soon as the Kickstarter campaign ends. Domenic has been perfecting the production process for two years so you can feel confident about receiving your Plant Pods on time.

Our manufacturing team in Philadelphia has proven that they are able to produce to our high standards. They are equipped with a top of the line CNC machines and operators who will be able to make dozens of Plant Pods at a time.

Our packaging and shipping team is also on board and ready to ship as soon as the finished objects are ready. Even if our campaign goes way above the original Kickstarter goal, we feel confident that you will receive your Plant Pods on time.

Consequently, the risk involved with production and fulfillment of Plant Pods is very low. We guarantee there will be care, passion and quality in every package.

That being said, Domenic is very confident that the campaign will go smoothly, and he is ready to work as hard as possibly to meet challenges if any do arise.

Thank you for your support! Every pledge goes a very long way.

FAQ

  • Update: We've created a 1-minute video here: http://www.plantpods.co/howto

    We've put Plant Pods on everything from plaster walls to concrete and brick—it takes just a few steps and only a couple of minutes. Everything you need to attach the Plant Pod to your wall are included. A drill can be handy and will speed up the process but in most cases you can do it with just a hammer and a screwdriver.

    How it works: The Plant Pod anchors to the wall via two screws. A keyhole locking mechanism on the rear of the pod snaps it right into place. This keeps it flush and secure. The Plant Pod comes with clear instructions and a marking template that helps you space the nails in the perfect spot.

    Last updated:
  • Your Plant Pods come with pretty much everything you need to install and enjoy them outside of a plant and soil. The package includes mounting screws, anchors, and clear instructions. You do need a hammer and screwdriver or a drill to help with the install.

    Last updated:
  • The Plant Pod measurements are 11.5" L x 8.5" W x 1.8" H

  • Cactus and succulents are very resilient and beautiful plants that require very little maintenance. We recommend using a spray bottle and giving a few good squirts once a week or every other week depending on the type of plant.

    We also recommend placing your Plant Pods near a sunny window where they can enjoy the sun.
