If you want a classically proportioned, simple, rugged, no-frills modern design that will give years of service in extreme environmental conditions, order the Nautique model with its straightforward 24-gallon bin made with recyclable HDPE with double the UV life expectancy of 15 years.
Passivated 304 Stainless Steel frame, feet, and lid mean all parts are easily recyclable. A great multi-purpose receptacle for recycling, trash, towels.
Perfect out at the beach, a pool, or ski area. Without the lid the Nautique works well for towels in a salon, spa, gym, or yoga studio.
A Designer’s Dream! Like its namesake, our Chameleon trash, recycling, or towel bin can change its decorative skin to blend in or stand out in any environment with an infinite variety of looks. DeepStream can wrap your graphics shell with any of our stock graphic materials, or use the flexible graphic materials of your choice, or you can do it yourself.
A key component of sustainable design is adaptability. Good design allows for the replacement, or reworking, of components to preserve the value and materials of an earlier design when a situation requires it. Even if that situation arises early in the life cycle of a design.
Nowhere is that more apparent than when an error has been made on large complex projects where a miscalculation between initial measurements and “as-built” dimension means that components ordered months earlier in a project do not fit when finally installed.
You can see in this example where DeepStream’s modular planter design allowed us to cut down the lengths of planks in the middle section of a multi-section planter to accommodate an unrecorded change in dimensions at very little cost in dollars or materials.
While the wood will take a week or so to fade to the match color the same design feature allows for replacement of parts or further adaptation for the life of the planter.

The Shoji Trash Bin has six horizontal stainless steel rings surrounding a graphics shell which encloses a 14-gallon rigid bin liner molded from 100% post-industrial LLDPE. Shown in Mirroflex Celtic Weave in Oil-Rubbed Bronze.
The Diminimis Trash Bin has four horizontal stainless steel rings surrounding the graphics shell which also encloses a 14-gallon rigid bin liner molded from 100% post-industrial LLDPE. Shown in 3M Di-NOC Bubinga Wood
Industrial Chic Trash Bin uses either stainless steel frame or lid but the Graphics Shell is replaced with an industrial tough 3/16” thick 24-gallon bin molded from proprietary granite-look HDPE in 3 colors which doubles as the decorative shell.
While wood-on-wood planter construction will last 3 to 5 years, DeepStream’s Mariner garden planters are engineered to last for decades, giving the lowest cost of ownership over time, and are backed with a Lifetime Structural Warranty.
If your ownership or responsibility for the building where planters will be placed will last more than five years, give serious consideration as to what it will mean in terms of cost and disruption to go back and replace or repair planters, especially on rooftops and balconies, every 3 – 5 years.
The Mariner test planter shown below, with only an initial waterproofing at our workshop, has been exposed to the Miami sun and rain for with no maintenance for seven years.
The same planter shown below after sanding .014″ off the face of the planks and re-waterproofing and wiping down the proprietary marine-anodized legs with mineral spirits.
Wood-on-wood planter construction uses carpentry techniques that fasten wood to wood, and planters tear themselves apart with the expansive forces that wood exerts through repeated wet and dry cycles.
Why? Each wooden plank is cut from a different part of the tree or even different trees. This means each plank has its own differential rate of expansion and warping when wetted. This makes dimensional stability using standard wood-on-wood construction in two dimensions impossible to maintain over time, and shipbuilding techniques and maintenance are far too costly for planter construction. In addition, most wood planters lack adequate isolation from the soil and the deck or sidewalk, which promotes fresh water rot.
For centuries, wood dowels have been inserted into holes drilled into rock, then soaked with water. The expansion force of the wood is thus harnessed to crack blocks off marble and granite for construction, even though the blocks are hundreds of times thicker than the thin wooden dowel.
DeepStream uses proprietary marine anodized legs and stainless steel fasteners to clamp the wood and direct the expansionary so that the wood can expand and contract at different rates without affecting the planter’s structural integrity. The commercial grade rigid plastic liners, mounted on an independent aluminum frame, contain the soil and prevent contact between the soil and the wood.
Aluminum legs are protected and galvanically isolated from a wet deck by using plastic, HDPE, feet. Even stainless steel fasteners are galvanically isolated by using a proprietary dielectric paste so that they may be removed easily years later to replace parts or refinish the planter easily as shown in the before and after pictures below of a 7-year-old planter that only had the original coat of factory waterproofing and no maintenance. This “fresh” look was achieved by sanding off just.014” of the planks exterior.
Comparison of planks after sanding and before waterproofing shown below.
The near flawless proprietary marine anodized leg, show below, after cleaning with mineral spirits. Disassembly for sanding was easy thanks to the proprietary dielectric paste used to prevent corrosion between the stainless steel fasteners and the aluminum leg.
