Wallpaper* Handmade (2015)
Swedish architect and designer Jonas Wagell specialises in compact, modular creations, and this greenhouse and plant display system is no exception. Designed in collaboration with Spanish outdoor furniture specialist Kettal, the flatpack system has been conceived with aesthetics, functionality and sustainability in mind. It consists of metal shelves held by thin steel rods, which come in a variety of sizes and heights and can be stored in a planter-shaped base element. The shelves can easily be turned into a small greenhouse by topping them with an acrylic roof from which hangs a windproof polyester curtain held in place by a series of magnets.
