Window Gardens

Window Gardens

I’m not a huge fan of voronoi patterns, but I think the randomness works really well for this modern, one-of-a-kind window design. The Plant Window is constructed of a number of planter boxes that together create a natural curtain that filters sunlight. Simply plant your favorite succulent or veggies to transform what would be an ordinary window into a wall of green and sunlight.

Plant Monitor for 2015

Plant Monitor for 2015

A time will soon come when baby monitors will be out of fashion and be replaced with ones for plants. In preparations designer Hyun Seok Kang has devised the Monologue. Just like any gadget that keeps tabs on babies, this one too relays info like temperature, soil condition, moisture levels and the basic mood of the plant. Is it healthy, happy or sad! The thang is voice activated and essentially keeps guiding you on how to be a better mommy plant. Love it!

Green Thumbs Up for Kids

Green Thumbs Up for Kids

In a world full of mesmerizing indoor toys like computers and video game consoles, it’s easy to lose sight of the bright sun and blue sky found in our own backyard… especially if you’re a kid! Inspired by this idea, these child-safe gardening tools were designed to help promote an active lifestyle, health-conscious attitude, and overall respect for nature. The Parrot pruner, Watermelon watering attachment, and Snail shovel combine whimsical aesthetic with intuitive functionality that will turn gardening from a chore into a fun and exciting outdoor activity.

For The Love of Plants and Cleaning

For The Love of Plants and Cleaning

I love the simple TwoFaced Window, a window that allows you to conveniently clean both the sides of the pane and nurture plants according to the elements. The window pivots and does a full 360-degree rotation. Well the cleaning aspect is one part of the design, however the thoughtful incorporation of a flowerbed and its maintenance, scores it many brownie points!

Flower Talk

Flower Talk

The Floating Pot is for both the green thumb folks and the not-so-plant-savvy people like me. Basically it’s a pot-in-pot where the inner pot floats up to a certain level when water is poured into it. As and when the water gets absorbed the inner pot sinks, indicating replenishment of water. The green-thumb folks will look at it as a two-way communication between their beloved plant and them. Forgetful folks like me will take it as a reminder to water the plant before it dies!

The circular disk that supports the house also doubles as the perfect perch for sun bathing.

City Compost Bin

City Compost Bin

Composting is an important, vital part to creating a sustainable city but few urbanites engage in the activity because of stigmas. The idea of having a heap of organic trash slowly decomposing away inside a hot box doesn’t seem very sanitary but to change that perception, the C/N concept aesthetically improves the appearance and ease of use of city compositing bins.

Beautifully Disposed Trash

Beautifully Disposed Trash

The sight of ugly trash bins in scenic parks certainly mars the natural beauty. Bryant Park Litter Receptacles and Recycling Bins put an end to the eyesores and appear as inspirational pieces that urge us to be responsible citizens. The bins come in three variations, one for general trash, one for papers and one for cans and bottles. The linear detailing, colors and operational slits match the function of each bin.

Analog Cooling of Interior Spaces

Analog Cooling of Interior Spaces

How would you like to be able to cool your house (assuming you live in a part of the world where it gets hot enough to need cooling) without the use of electricity at all, whatsoever? What if instead of using electric power to stay cool in your home all day, all you had to do was run a bit of cold water in the morning? It appears that designers Mey kahn and Boaz Kahn have transported an ancient secret into the now that’ll do just that, and with a fantastically lovely bit of interior design as a conduit.
