Designed by Haldane Martin for Indigenus, the Tuber is crafted from Iroko wood – a durable African timber often used for boat building, flooring and outdoor-furniture. Individual pieces of Iroko are bolted together with stainless steel pins and hand-assembled into an impressive form that is then turned to create a sensual, soft finish. Over time, if used outdoors and left to weather naturally, the Tuber will age into a beautiful silver-grey hue.
Launched in 2014 by Indigenus with an edited range of distinctive contemporary planters by award-winning designers Gregor Jenkin and Laurie Wiid van Heerden of Wiid Design.
Inspired by urban greening, INDIGENUS collaborates with top South African designers and architects to reimagine an essential element, the planter.
Presenting planters as covetable design pieces in their own right, INDIGENUS is the brainchild of design entrepreneur Peter van der Post, who is committed to collaborating with the cream of South African design to create an international premium brand with distinctively South African roots.
