Studio Idaë


Product design


The Chantepleure is a watering can that fills by immersion in water. It reinterprets an ancestor of our watering cans made out of terracotta. Drop-shaped, it reminds us its medieval use where gardeners used it to recover the rain water they had harvested. This watering can is intended for both outdoor and domestic use (collective garden, shared garden, balcony, planter).

Immerse the Chantepleure in the water, and plug the top hole with your thumb. Water the plants by controlling the water flow with a simple gesture.
