Muji Plant Light
Design Details


This planter was designed using MUJI’s brand ideology to allow for easy plant care. This planter includes a dimmable light to both facilitate plant growth and create a calm atmosphere. The light is turned on using a touch-sensitive ring at the top of the planter. This feature allows the user to place a plant anywhere in a space without worrying about its proximity to a window or natural light. It also includes a drainage compartment inspired by an existing MUJI product to allow for easier removal after watering. The form is clean and simple to match the MUJI brand identity. 

Main Materials: Polypropylene, ABS
