Seedy case: Planter for gardeners on the go

26.01.2010 Plants : Growing : Flower

Paris – A flowerbed in the shape of a suitcase, shown at this week’s Maison et Objet, could be the perfect planter for the gardener who’s always on the move.

Taking its cues from wheeled suitcases, lined with textile waste – that is, shredded old clothes – and designed by a graduate from Design Academy Eindhoven, Gionata Gatto, the UrbanBuds planter means people can now take their plants with them.

As documented in Homestead 3.0 and an Insight News report about consumers growing their own, people are increasingly using communal spaces to grow vegetables. With the UrbanBuds planter, new residents can easily contribute to the crop too.
