Droplet Desktop Planters

Interior Desk Planter

Featuring fun yet sophisticated retro style, the Droplet desk planter highlighted in the photograph is produced here at H & H Manufacturing & Metal Spinning Inc. for Pad Outdoor. Pad Outdoor is a Los Angeles based company focused on designing beautiful products and manufacturing them locally in a conscientious manner. Constructed from aluminum, an easily recyclable metal, we use metal spinning to form the geometry of the planter. Metal spinning involves shaping a pre-cut aluminum blank by pushing it over a mandrel rotating at high speed. Our operators are highly skilled, the process requires minimal tooling, and it generates very little material waste, making it a very quality-conscious and cost-conscious approach to fabrication.

This version of the Droplet features approximate dimensions of 8.0″ in diameter x 5.0″ in height. The spun aluminum design is 0.050″ in thickness, making it lightweight and sturdy. Our technicians have the experience and dexterity to execute a two-part spinning process to form the geometric attributes of this single piece tabletop vessel. This product also features a decorative powder coated finish. Powder coating is an economical method for creating color-durable finishes and it is also environment-friendly. We use no solvents or VOCs and collect the over-sprayed powder for reuse. The durability of our powder-coated finish enables consumers to display the mid-century modern tabletop planters both indoors and outdoors.

We produce approximately 100 of these planters per order and deliver them within 10 to 15 days. The company is impressed with the quality of our workmanship and our reliability, which has led to additional project partnerships.
