Panimo – Biodegradable Planters
2013

Panimo is a series of different planter boxes designed for young children. It encourages children to eat healthier by growing their own food in a most environmental friendly way. Panimo is made of organic materials from earth and after it completes its product lifespan, it biodegrades itself and goes back to the earth. The user can choose from any of the three designs by the shape, colour or the size depending on certain type of plants.

Jessie Lee has been awarded "Best Critical Justification" in Industrial Design at the 2013 MADA Now exhibition.

The Panimo has provided a new method for young children to eat healthier whilst providing a fun and educational experience. Also it provides a positive effect for children’s development in this overly industrialized environment. Panimo is also environmentally friendly and healthy for children by being both upcycled and biodegradable.
