The design of the Wandering Planter started with a hand truck. A hand truck is a funny object because in spite of its completely utilitarian intention, its design language is more related to furniture than a hardware store tool. The object is almost always reduced to a Bauhaus-like tubular form and designed to perform a single specific function. It seemed natural to translate this already very handsome archetype for use in the domestic space. Of course, there are really only a small number of domestic chores that require the mechanical advantage that a hand truck offers, the most backbreaking of all being the moving of plants.
