The STAVE PLANTER was born from the unique strengths of the craftspeople at Ishinomaki as well as the material limitations of humble dimensional lumber. Through careful consideration of both parameters, the idea to create an enclosed volume by joining individual planks of wood slowly emerged. Drawing inspiration from coopered barrels, the STAVE PLANTER is comprised of identical boards that are arranged to create roughly cylindrical forms.
