Tableau: Automatic House Plant Watering Tray
Three ceramic pots, a glass reservoir, and a steel base make Tableau, the latest piece by the award winning Dutch designers at Pikaplant.
We want to make plantkeeping so easy that anyone can do it. We believe greener living is better living, and we think everyone should be growing herbs, crops, and beautiful plants everywhere. That’s why we started Pikaplant, and that’s why we created Tableau.
Are you away from home a lot for work and travels? Are you forgetful when it comes to watering your plants? Do you know anyone who is? Tableau is an automatic house plant watering tray. It waters your plants so you don’t have to.
It’s hard to keep house plants healthy and happy. Over-watering and under-watering are two of the biggest problems faced by aspiring home gardeners. That’s because most plants like to be watered in a steady rhythm.
When we designed Tableau’s irrigation system, we looked to an obvious source for inspiration, nature. In nature a plant gets its water in a wet-dry cycle. The wet allows roots to absorb water. The dry lets them air out and breathe. This is good for a plant’s roots, making it grow strong and healthy.
Tableau mimics this natural cycle to automatically water your plants. Tableau makes growing leafy greens, bright florals, and tasty herbs super easy. Grow plants for food. Grow plants that clean the air. Grow plants for fun. They’ll brighten up any room.
Designed in the Netherlands, its simple minimalist aesthetic brings out the best in your plants. We’ve used basic materials like glass, steel, and ceramics because we believe in making quality products. Tableau’s sleek design brings a simple tranquility into your home or work space.
Watering your plants with Tableau is easy. Just make sure there’s water in the reservoir and Tableau does the rest. The reservoir is easy to lift off of the base for refilling, so you can place your plants away from a water source. By watering your plants from below, your plants decide how much to drink. The reservoir contains enough to water three plants for around a month.
