London based company Ilex Studio creates innovative products to help us connect with the natural world. From tiny acorns, giant oak trees grow.
Ilex Studio was founded with the simple idea that planting trees and growing plants is a beautiful thing. Frustrated by cobbled-together solutions to sprouting acorns and avocado stones into seedlings, Ilex invented glass vessels specifically for this purpose. These beautiful flagon-style vases are crafted from borosilicate glass, allowing the grower to witness the wonder of a growing seedling.
Gift of the Year winner 2021, Ilex Studio has won numerous awards for its inspirational and straightforward design. They believe that planting trees build a legacy for the future and have created an item that can be used in urban environments by adults and children alike. The acorn can thrive for a whole year in the vase before being planted outside for future generations to enjoy. The vase comes in recycled packaging with full instructions on caring for your seedling.
