Designed by Naoto Fukasawa for Serralunga
Cup Planter
Curved and cozy — In designing his outdoor safe Cup Planter, Naoto Fukasawa was inspired by the curved shape of ancient wooden bowls to create “a cozy atmosphere for plants.”


Fitting into people’s lives

Naoto Fukasawa’s approach to design is based on careful observation of people’s actions and feelings, which enables him to create products that fit into people’s lives so naturally that they’re “Without Thought,” a concept he teaches at two universities and to clients worldwide. His Cup Planter (2003) is crafted of double-walled UV- and weather-resistant polyethylene that’s 100% recyclable. It can be drilled in the center from the inside out to allow drainage. Made in Italy.

Kills plants
I have had this planter since 2017 and have replanted it 3x but every time it traps moisture at the base, develops a rotten smell and kills the plant. I have cleaned and disinfected it between plantings and still, I end up with this disgusting sludge that smells diseased. If you are considering buying one of these definitely put gravel at the bottom (even with the drain holes) and well, I'd advise against the purchase.

Perfect for my rooftop garden
I have two of the extra large cup planters (and two of the small ones). They weathered a Maine winter outside and still look great. I use them for my tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, etc. on my roof top terrace (second year). Love then and am planning to get more. They look great grouped together or standing alone.. remind me of Japanese soaking tubs. I drilled holes on the bottom and added a layer of rocks to help with drainage.
