Îlot, an island of greenery.
Îlot, is a French word describing an element of particular character isolated within a larger and different nature. What’s more, it’s a space arranged with vegetation.
Thus, our team of plant-loving, eco-responsible designers, engineers and nutritionists aim to furnish your home with beautiful islands of greenery that will flourish in your space and nourish you with food. Designed to harmonize with your decor, while making it possible to grow better herbs, flowers, vegetables, fruits, mushrooms and algae inside your home.
HIRTA, our first Îlot of inspiration
Our first product, is named after a small, green and pleasant island in the St Kilda archipelago, found on the western edge of Scotland.

Growing edible plants can require different conditions - in terms of light, nutrients and environment - so we will offer you models that will meet your needs and theirs.
Jess the founder
Whilst studying and working professionally as a graphic designer, Jess maintained and appetite for all things design, for all things living and for all things cooking related. During this time and the experiences it brought, one idea persisted to germinate, that of designing quality objects that would inspire people to grow a variety of edible plants at home.
From this, îlot was born. A project - and a career change - driven by the founder’s values, such as respect for the planet, for people’s work and for the importance of durable and sustainable design.
