There’s something so calming about a gentle winter fog. Studio Rem have captured this soothing sensation with their latest feature, ‘Nebl.’
As inner-city apartment dwellers begin to grasp at any connection to nature, mandatory pot plants are a common sight. Nebl offers a wholesome twist to your brown and dying palms. Made from mouthblown glass, Nebl gives plants the rich aesthetic of a gothic European mid-winter morning. Perfect for preserving the cooler months as we rocket towards summer.
Nebel is the German word for fog; a minimalist name for a minimalist product. Studio Rem have long stuck to a tradition of minimalism that has served them well in a world of stuffed interior designs. Nebl is a stern nod to this tradition and an advocate of what the company hopes will be a continuing trend toward the future.
‘With Nebl I’ve tried to capture the impression of a walk on a cold and foggy day in Berlin.’ – Michael Rem.
This piece will doubtfully be everyone’s ideal aesthetic. But for those of us who prefer a calming, still, and natural home, Nebl offers a glassy capsule for your most delicate flora. Designer Michael Rem created Nebl using two parts. The first being the mouthblown, hand-made glass that is the body of the work. The second being a black or space-grey ceramic base to match the sweet melancholy mood. Rem has also created two separate entry holes; one larger and one smaller, depending on how high or low one would like to see their plants sit.
As you can see, a small collection of four or five Nebl’s does wonders for the cosiness of an inner-city loft. The planter also recently won the Archiproducts Design Award for 2018. Impress strangers with your bleak yet cool mystique and love for the uncanny.
