Context

Bespoke lead-clad tree planters were commissioned for a refurbishment project at Adare Manor Hotel in Co Limerick, Ireland.

Product supplied

IOTA designed the planters with counter-relief moulding to define and add substance to the planter rim and footing. This detailing was combined with a subtle relief moulding to frame the planter sides to create a classic, timeless design suited to the prestigious site.

A total of 20 planters were supplied ( L / W / H 800mm and 1200mm). The largest planters weighed 369kg. The planters were manufactured from 3.15mm-thick lead, clad onto a structural stainless steel subframe. The resulting double-skin construction delivers the unique aesthetic of lead, whilst relying on the superior strength and strength-to-weight ratio of steel for the planters’ technical performance.

The planters are braced internally, and include 4 steel eye bolts in the base  to serve as both tree anchor points, and lifting points during installation.
