Bergamo planters: Where contemporary meets traditional

Bergamo planters: Where contemporary meets traditional
Innovation

Inspired by the current “Modern Craft” trend, Soendgen Keramik showcases traditional manufacturing charm combined with modern aspects with the ceramic series “Bergamo”. The planters are characterized by an irregular handmade-looking ribbed relief pattern – which is emphatically accentuated by the transparent glazes used on them. The color scheme of leaf and mint green, light grey and lavender rounds off the products’ authentic-looking character.

Pots in diameter 13, 14, 16, 19, 21, 24 centimetre

Bologna planters

Adding some sparkle to the winter

Soendgen Keramik creates a festive atmosphere in its own special way with its new product “Bologna”. With a slightly bent, powdery-looking structure available in “silver white” and “gold white”, “Bologna” softly reflects the light coming in. The interior of the Bologna vessels emphasises their high quality even more through their all-over shiny matt gold and silver color. This creates an exciting “in and out effect” for a glamorous Christmas.

Naturally purist - the “Concrete Living” trend

The minimalist style of Scandinavian design with its light and dark color nuances and clear shapes is increasingly shaping ideas in interior design. Exposed concrete plays a huge part in this. The new “Latina Concrete” series in “light-grey cement” with two different versions impresses both as a Jardinère as well as a square planter. The new “Bettona” product in “light and dark grey cement” is the ideal addition to the series with its round shape.

The bloom-like form of the new orchid vase "Madeira Orchid" by SK highlights the beauty of the plant

With the trade fair newcomer "Madeira Orchid", Soendgen Keramik is introducing an orchid vase in the form of a flower and is following the design trend of deformation. "Dynamic Shapes" is the name that SK gives to this style that modifies usual symmetries and reinterprets corners and edges in creative diversity.

The gentle, dynamic flowing form of "Madeira Orchid" supports the beauty of the still most popular houseplant and creates a graceful, lively interplay of plant and vessel. The delicate, blossom-shaped curves give the vessel a feminine, elegant style – made only for the "queen of flowers". The same applies to the color concept: white, cyclamen, lavender and soft yellow are precisely attuned to the different types of orchids. An exclusive special feature is anthracite: The noble-purist tone provides form and plant with the lead role and is attractive with its masterfully restrained presence in a contemporary setting.

Proper protection for long-lasting beauty

Not only beauty, but also protection and care are important criteria in the development of cachepots at Soendgen.

Like all SK orchid vases, "Madeira Orchid" is also equipped with the anti-water-logging ridge, which protects plants from too much watering. With its 14 cm diameter and 15 cm height, the vase is perfectly matched to the proportion of the orchid. The beautiful vessels can also be combined together excellently – for example, as an attractive duo in the colors cyclamen and anthracite.

The deformation of the ceramic vessels is possible, by the way, due to an innovative technique that has been specially developed by Soendgen Keramik.

SK outdoor series "Sardegna" for the modern outdoor ambience

SK outdoor series "Sardegna" for the modern outdoor ambience

SK has extended its open-air collection with puritanically straight terracotta vessels that have high-quality surface protection

The trend for "outdoor living" is unbroken – whether in rural areas or in cities. With the trade fair newcomer "Sardegna", Soendgen now has a terracotta series with a modern-minimalist style. In keeping with the urban outdoor ambiance, the look is determined by a basically conical form and straight, horizontal lines, as can be found in terrace flooring or slatwalls. Depending on the size and shape, the design consists of two or three grooves. The clear appearance gives the material and color an attractive, natural touch: The Terracotta decor is wiped sand gray.

Genuine terracotta – stays beautiful through quality surface protection

For customers who value a consistent appearance, Soendgen has provided the vessels with a high quality sealant. It gently protects the open-air series "Sardegna" from weathering and efflorescence – the beautiful appearance is maintained over a long period of time. An optimal solution for consumers who love this natural material, but who do not want to compromise on appearance. Water stains, lime scaling and moss are prevented, and the sand gray wiped decor remains immaculate – as on the first day. The positive properties of the clay are maintained, such as its breathability or its frost and UV resistance.

SK Open-air newcomer "Calabria" is exciting with its decorative tendril relief

SK Open-air newcomer "Calabria" is exciting with its decorative tendril relief

With their graceful style, the natural terracotta vessels adorn balcony, garden and terrace

"Calabria". The name of the new high pot series in the SK Outdoor range has been chosen deliberately. Thoughts wander to southern Italy, one thinks of the sun and the Mediterranean, staying outdoors. There, it's natural to make the garden, patio or balcony as attractive as possible. Soendgen provides for this with its open-air collection of decorative cachepots made of real terracotta. The material is back in fashion. It satisfies customers who enjoy natural beauty and vessels with authentic character.

Leaf tendrils in relief

The innovative relief design on the upper edge of the vessel is noteworthy: It shows fine leaf tendrils, which underline the natural look of "Calabria". An eye-catcher that differentiates the cachepot from the ordinary and makes it special. The high pot "Calabria" is available in 23, 27, 31 and 36 cm diameters with matching saucers. As to color, there is the choice of terracotta and sand gray.

Only the best for plants

 The skill of Soendgen lies not only in the design – the focus is primarily on the plants. As a result, the natural material offers many advantages: With its open pores, terracotta is breathable, absorbing water and releasing it again – for nice, strong growth. In addition, a water drain hole in the bottom ensures against water logging in the pot, thereby protecting the roots from too much moisture. Terracotta vessels are UV and frost resistant, so they can even be stored outside in winter. Be sure that they don't absorb too much water in freezing temperatures, though.

The plant varieties which look particularly attractive in the new "Calabria" high pots are indicated for the presentation of the products: those with small stems, such as olive trees, orange trees, lemon trees or boxwood. Those who prefer flowering plants should select a plant with a single color – lavender, heather or coxcomb.

Designed for plant trend of Cacti

Designed for plant trend of Cacti

Triangle series "Malmö Nature" is attractive with its natural two-tone look

"Malmö Nature" expands the triangle series "Malmö" with a purist color design that has a rustic natural charm. The vessels are specially designed for cacti that are seen by designers as current and upcoming trendy plants. Expressive peculiarity of "Malmö Nature": The cachepots and bowls held in raw terra and gray are combined with a glossy-smooth edge in the trendy color of mint. An eye-catching two-tone look – deliberately attuned to the plants that shimmer with two colors in the light. The green of the cacti changes depending on the characteristics or type of the stem and needles – a play of color which is reflected by the pastel mint color and staged as an eye catcher.

The range of the "Malmö Nature" series includes cachepots in the sizes of 13 and 16 cm diameter as well as a bowl with a 22 cm diameter.

Seen – purchased: This is how the successful product presentation works.

Thinking in concepts is one of the major strengths of the offers from Soendgen Keramik. Experience shows that harmonious product concepts stimulate customers more to make a purchase than do individual products. As a result, the manufacturer not only recommends suitable plants for each new product, but also provides ideas on the presentation of goods. The PoS for "Malmö Nature" is designed effectively with a durable, bright wood table or a piece of furniture in the vintage style. Cacti are decorated together with the SK StyleStones. Tips for the shell: It is suitable for a stone garden or cacti arrangement. In addition, "Malmö Nature" can also be an attention-getter between the "Malmö" series.

Nature, purism and craftsmanship

Nature, purism and craftsmanship

With “Green Motion”, “Concrete Living” and “Modern Craft”, Soendgen Keramik will be at the forefront of new trends in 2018

Color and product design are influenced by megatrends the same way as many other aspects of life. Digitization and urbanization are exactly this kind of phenomenon – they make us want to make our living space feel more natural and authentic. This is the inspiration behind “Green Motion”, “Concrete Living” and “Modern Craft”, Soendgen Keramik’s three trends for 2018.

“Green Motion” is made up of color effects based on plants and leaves. The generally cool, subdued color tones can be seen in a wide range of different trends, which is why the company has chosen them as its “Color Heroes 2018”. The SK trend “Concrete Living” is characterized by natural concrete looks. The material is known for its purism and its timeless elegance, and with its variety of creative applications it provides an entry into interior design. This new kind of craftsmanship with strikingly beautiful relief structures can be discovered in the “Modern Craft” trend. It combines the traditional with the modern in a multitude of ways.

 

The “Green Motion” trend: Cool, subdued tones of green are the SK “Color Heroes 2018”

No color tone is more closely associated with nature than green. Because the demand for a natural look shows no sign of slowing down, a whole spectrum of green tones is set to dominate ideas in interior design in 2018. Soendgen Keramik has therefore developed the new colors “moss green” and “lime green” for the successful series “Basel Fashion”. These tones have consciously been chosen for their restrained elegance, meaning that they integrate excellently with the plants. The silky-matt surface of the vessels also underlines the natural look. This enables you to combine green plants such as ferns, alocasia or aloe. The “Basel Fashion” series, which has a range of eight different sizes from 12 to 27 cm, is intended to be displayed on shelves. When used together with furnishings made from wood, wicker and stone, it also allows you to design elegant and fashionable tables which give a genuinely natural feel. 

 

The “Concrete Living” trend: concrete gives the purist style a special flavor

Scandinavian design philosophy is increasingly becoming the dominant way of thinking, both when it comes to furnishings and decorative objects. Its minimalist style with bright and dark nuances of color and its clear shapes makes concrete a popular choice for walls and worktops and now for living accessories too. The raw feel, timeless elegance and restrained use of color means concrete can be combined in a multitude of ways. In addition to this, as a true natural product this trendy material fulfills people’s wish for an authentic-looking environment. Soendgen Keramik meets this consumer demand with the trade show highlights “Latina Concrete” and “Bettona”.

The attractive planters for “Latina Concrete” are square in shape and are available in six different sizes from 13 to 29 cm, apart from the rectangular Jardinière. The Jardinière’s dimensions of 28 x 14 x 14 cm make it perfectly suited for showcasing multiple plants such as e.g. two orchids. Both models are available in the “light gray cement” color tone. The “Bettona” series has a harmonious round shape in diameters from 14 to 22 cm, and is also available in both the “light gray cement” and “dark gray cement” colors.

 

The “Modern Craft” trend: handicraft for a new generation

The rediscovery of handicrafts forms the inspiration for the “Modern Craft” trend. This combines traditional manufacturing charm with modern aspects. So for example, the new ceramic vessels “Bergamo” are characterized by an irregular grooved profile, which is highlighted by gentle glazes in leaf and mint green color as well as light gray and lavender. These colors are natural and give a harmonious and original effect. Just like with the sandy-matt surfaces on the inside, it reinforces the hand-made character of the vessels. They are available in six sizes ranging from 13 to 24 cm and as a hanging basket in light gray, cream and white gloss colors.
