​As the earth’s population rushes to live closer together, in more compact urban centres, and while we are increasingly wanting to grow our own food, the team at Barreau & Charbonnet have come up with a design that intelligently responds to both these trends.

The design plugs into your window, and when in a horizontal position allows plants to capture light and water, while at a vertical position, the installation helps to filter the air, screen unwanted sunlight and provide eaiser maintenance.
