The story behind the design planter

As described by its creator, Eero, peacocks had a significant presence in his childhood, despite their distant origin from Finland. Eero grew up in close proximity to the Helsinki zoo, situated on an island where the peacocks, originally imported from India, roamed freely due to their poor flying abilities.

Eero was both fascinated and frightened by the peacocks in the zoo because they were bigger than him when they fanned their tails.

Eero’s childhood memories of the peacocks at the zoo inspired him to create this new planter design, which holds great symbolism for him. Naturally, he named it “Peacock,” thus reuniting with the figure from his childhood. Vondom admires Eero Aarnio’s iconic and timeless creations.
