For all of us urban dwellers who crave indoor greenery but find ourselves a bit short on space, here’s a great solution that requires almost no square footage: Joost Bakker’s Schiavello Vertical Gardens.  The steel-frame interior plant system was designed on a grid that allows numerous plants to be stacked vertically in columns or walls- providing the perfect backdrop for any office or apartment that needs and extra bit of greening but can’t afford the space required for them (when you can’t build out, build up!).
“The main philosophy behind my work is I don’t try to imitate nature. I do the complete opposite while still respecting it. The Vertical Garden is a living product,” Joost Bakker says. The system is especially useful for commercial environments, where the vertical gardens will help to provide better indoor air quality.
