Metaphys is a design studio based in Japan that create some beautiful minimal products. Their latest offering is this planter series called “ienami” – inspired by buildings with miniature roof gardens. The collection consists of four designs: Alley, Plaza, Tunnel and Zig Zag.


Ienami extracts one essence from the foliage watching culture of ancient Japan called “Bonkei”.


By placing plants and flowers into the planter, a house complete with its own garden is created.


When combined with multiple planters, a scenic miniature town is developed. Enjoy watching the plants grow in the cubic 10cm miniture house.
