Grow – 2012; Steneby Craft and Design

Innovative designs to strengthen our connection to plants...

We all know how important the greenery in our environment is for us. We simply cannot live without it; yet, our homes often act as if it didn’t exist – aside from the countless dead trees that furnish it. The students of University of Gothenburg’s Steneby School of Craft and Design presented a series of solutions to this environmental conundrum at last week’s Stockholm Design Week.

How can we bring green into our homes in a more engaging, interactive way? From Felix Wink’s planter chair, through to Per Ingvad’s bold concept of travelling with your plants, Grow – 2012 offered up a splendid diversity of innovative, engaging – and, above all, fun – responses to our ever-growing disassociation with the outdoors.
