About this project
Bring joy to your work, and living spaces in a small, simple and beautifully designed package! The Lander is a self watering porcelain planter, with a hardwood stand.
With conventional / top-down watering the base will catch the excess water that drips through the insert. Water your plant where it is without making a mess!
The Lander Planter's self watering option works through capillary action. Water slowly moves up from the reservoir base through the nylon wick, to keep your plants soil constantly wet. This is great for plants that like wet soil, or for keeping any plant watered when you go on vacation.
There are tons of benefits that come from having plants around! Not only do they clean the air, promoting health and wellness, they can also boost your mood and reduce stress.
The Lander Planters is perfect for developing a creative work environment. Having plants in the office can and increase productivity and creativity. The Lander Planter's small, unobtrusive design is the perfect addition to your work space.
Made of porcelain and hard wood, the simple contrasting materials will fit right into your kitchen. The Lander is perfect for growing small vegetables and herbs.
Having the right plants in the bedroom can lead to a better nights sleep with cleaner air and relaxing aromas.
We will be making the planter in our studio in Santa Cruz, California. The porcelain parts are made using a process called slip casting. Here is a quick peak at part of the process, we will be sharing the entire process as we go!
Since we will be making planters ourselves, we will be shipping out planters as we make them.
In 2013 we launched our first Kickstarter project, Cold Bruer - a simple and transparent way to make slow drip cold brew coffee at home. The campaign was a big success! After reaching over 600% of the funding goal we shipped out 3,200 rewards to our backers. We have since turned Bruer into a full time company.
We have decided to launch this project under the name Modest Matter. Under this brand we hope The Lander will be just the first in a line of simple every day products designed to brighten your day.
Risks and challenges
This project was designed to be a bit simpler than our first. We will be making the planters ourselves in order to have a little bit more control over the process and time line. We have produced a small test run of planters already and are confident that we can make it happen.
Potential delays could arise if we go way over our funding goal and need to find more help to produce the planters, or if we need to find new suppliers, testing new materials could take some extra time.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
