Dutch designer Daniel Schipper [2] created the foldable greenhouse for city gardens and rooftop terrariums. Made from recycled plastics, the greenhouse roof folds up flat for easy storage and transience. The base is also made from recycled plastic composite and its lack of framework or support materials makes it a minimalist no-fuss appliance. Just unfold, snap, and water.

Schipper’s foldable greenhouse has been causing a stir in the Netherlands [3] and he searches for a production partnership to bring it to the global market. It’s just one of many innovative creations from his Amsterdam studio which focuses on concept, research and design having completed. Many of Schipper’s projects emphasize sustainability, functionality and fold-ability.

Just two years out of The Design Academy Eidhoven [4], Schipper’s portfolio boasts a number of thoughtful folding objects including a lampshade, a children’s chair and even a misprinted milk carton shelter.
