Plantable consists of four potted [10] table legs attached to a recycled English oak [11]top. Each leg is hand bent and fillet brazed [12] into a twisting trellis [13] for greenery to grow upon. Simply plant and water your favorite climbing vine [14] such as tomatoes or sweet peas in each pot, and watch them slowly grow [15] around the table.

The piece calls attention to the distance [7]we put between ourselves and the food we eat. Vegetables often go through processing [16] and manufacturing before they are set on a dinner [17] table. Plantable not only showcases organic and sustainable growing [18] processes – it also reconnects diners [19] with the fun and beauty of the environment and what we eat.

Founded by Liam Healy and Jamie Elliot, JAILmake’s designs often comment on our relationship [20] with nature. They use in-house resources and employ local ccraftspeople [21]to make nearly every creation with local and sustainable [22]materials. Priding themselves on craftsmanship [23], the designers have made everything from sculptures [24] and furnishings to engineering [25] mechanics and even electronics.

JAILmake’s massive workshop is located in Southeast London [26], and their compelling environmental pieces [27] have been exhibited all over the U.K.
