About

Hey Vanzha friends!

Want to have a living green wall at home? Create a welcoming & energizing home for yourself and your loved ones? The future is green and you can join this future now!

This project will be the first to bring you the benefit of increased health & happiness at home by launching planters that are so well-designed, innovative and easy to hand that we will re-create a passion for keeping house-plants.

We are a team of three. Marischa brings the vision and ideas to the table, Laura is a design fanatic and her creativity makes her designs come alive in any home. Wim is our monitor and assures we create a financially sustainable company. Rest assured: we are here to stay. Together we are a team on a mission: to solve green-poverty at home!

Why back us up?

By backing us up we can afford to bring you a green wall made of Vanzha planters that fit any home. In this new world of green walls at home we encourage you to create your own design to fit your home and style. All supporters will get seeds in return as a gift, so we can both grow our ideas and help creating a green, healthy and happy world around us.

How will we use your supporting funds?

Once the project has pledged the funds needed we can start ordering the molds that were designed and engineered to produce your order. These molds are highly expensive and of crucial importance to bring high quality Vanzha planters to the market. With your support we can say ‘go’ to our partner with whom we have already designed and engineered the molds needed. We can’t wait to get started!

We can afford to bring two more colors to the market when the project has pledged 10K more than needed to go-to-market with one color. We have chosen to start with the color white and our second option is to get a chic bronze metallic color to you. And the third color? That one you decide! A third color will be voted on by you. All supporters can join the vote in order to co-create with us in this new world of green walls at home.

What you need to know about why we are here, our name and ambassador

Did you know that by the year 2025 China has produced 25 super cities with more than 25 million inhabitants? 25 million people living in one city. Wow – can you imagine? And this trend is taking place all around us in the world. People come and stay to live their life in cities: with friends and family. It not only decreases the living space around us – it as well dramatically decreases the air quality both indoor as outdoor. It is therefore time to get the air quality back in shape using natural resources: plants! Yes, house-plants. We are passionate about making house-plants hip again in order to solve the green-poverty at home. To do so, the world of planters will need a smashing innovation and we are here to bring that innovation to the market. With that innovation we will increase the indoor air quality contributing to a healthier, welcoming and more energizing home. For you and your loved ones. As we want such natural air-conditioned to be eye-candy, and become the masterpiece in your home, we have put a lot of energy in making it a gorgeously looking system.

The name of Vanzha was born from the world of cartoons: Wham, Roar, Vroem, Boem, Pow, Zap, Clang. They all indicate something has happened in the unspoken world you can’t miss. And well, that is exactly what Vanzha is: plants don’t speak but their impact in your home won’t pass you by unnoticed.

Our system is modular and can be bought to fit any home. Whether you want a full green wall, make a square around a picture you love, create a herb garden or a vertical or horizontal line of plants. With Vanzha you can go all directions. Like a chameleon Vanzha adapts to his environment in a very natural way. Chameleons blend in to fit – just like Vanzha’s creations.

What do I buy?

You buy a chic & solid self-watering modular green wall. This includes a full and fantastically designed hanging system with rod, brackets, back plates and planters. It is solid because you hang it at the wall and the planters itself are made of high quality durable material that is 100% tested to be water proof and super light so it can easily be carried by its aluminum back plate. This aluminium back plate looks really chic and the ultimate advantage is that we can produce customized colors by the order. We have created multiple sets that can be ordered here.

So here’s innovation number one: Vanzha products will be planters that work to the vertical walls at your home. Ah – did you actually know that the higher your house plants are located the more effective they are at air purification and filtering contaminants: so UP they go!

Innovation number two: it will be a next generation modular system so you can play with how to organize and place the planters at the wall yourself. This will free your creativity and enables all of you to have your personal green wall of Vanzha planters in your home. Wanna go crazy? Make your own full green wall: how cool is that?

Innovation number three: Vanzha planters are self-watering. Does that exist? Well yes and no. So the plant will not walk to the tab to get a drink. But we have designed a system that for 100% relies on the never failing nature law of the capillary effect. Capillary action is the tendency of a liquid to rise in narrow tubes or, in case of the Vanzha planter, into a thread. This thread made from wool has the natural composition of large fibers with spaces of air. When hydrated the spaces of air are swapped with water and goes up between the fibers. So we actually designed a planter that waters itself as you can see through this innovative design of pot and thread. The only thing you have to do yourself is to assure that this pot is re-filled when the reservoir is getting too low on water. To help you know when that is needed we as well have designed this little 'tell me when'. When this tiny detector falls too low you know it is about time. The massive advantage is that you can never over- or underwater your plants and there is no guessing on when you need to water the plants again as it is super easy to see.

Next steps

Once we have raised the funds needed we start to build this green world for all supporters. Here’s our planning:

July-August: make lots of new Vanzha friends and produce the molds that are already designed and engineered

September: start the production and ordering of parts that we have chosen for you to ease hanging your Vanzha creation

October: first produce, testing of end-results and quality assurance

November: shipping! & celebrate to continuation of a summer feel @ home while the leaves outside start coloring and falling.

Risks and challenges

We have listened and challenged ourselves to bring you the best that the world of green walls has to offer. And we are sure that this project will be a blast of a success! In addition, as we are used in a world of success, we keep our eyes open for issues and risks so we can destroy these bottlenecks before they mature.

Here’s are the ones that we have on our radar today:

Production: many things can go wrong when producing molds, planters and parts that need to be assembled in one perfect installation. Creating molds is expensive and a highly specialized task. We therefore have chosen to work with a partner, a family owned company, which have elevated making molds as their unique specialism. It is their mission to create top quality molds only to assure end-products of the highest quality possible. We have started with the end in mind! And have therefor chosen to work in an end-to-end approach to mitigate the risk of sending the perfect mold abroad in order to get sub-optimal produces back. We will work in an eco-system of mold and end-product manufacturers to assure we hold hands when things go wrong instead of pointing the finger.

Fulfillment: after having created and professionally packed the green wall of your choice we will need to get it to your home intact. We will make sure that we will work with professional shippers only and have the package fully insured so when things go wrong during shipment, causing your Vanzha planers to arrive damaged, we will do all we can to replace it, of course, at no cost.
