If Lady Gaga ever decides to go green with her fashion choices, we think this greenhouse shaped like a purse could be one of her favorite accessories. Designed by Studio Besau-Marguerre and Adrien Petrucci and showcased at last week's Milan Furniture Fair, the Greenhouse to Go is a portable greenhouse that combines art, design, fashion and plants into one enlightened piece. While this design may seem tongue-in-cheek at first glance, the Greenhouse to Go is a concept that explores the value of plant-life within our existence.
The Greenhouse to Go consists of a somewhat tall glass greenhouse with a soil base for planting. Leather straps wrap around the structure for security and a handle makes toting around the piece as simple as carrying a purse. The project was recently on show at this year’s Milan Furniture Fair , but we hope it makes it to the catwalks of Milan next season!
