Live Screen: A Modular Vertical Garden That Adds Patches of Green to Your Interior | Inhabitat – Green Design Will Save the World

I wonder if she makes them for cubicle spaces…

Inspired by the concept of living walls, designer Danielle Trofe created Live Screen, a sculptural, self-irrigating planter system, comprised of tiered, organic-shaped pods that can house many forms of domestic vegetation. This stand-alone, vertical structure is both modular and moveable and can be placed anywhere in an interior. The irrigation system is concealed within the form using custom pumps that distribute water to the top tier and from there the unique design uses gravity to deliver water to each of the pods. The pumps are also set on a timer that activates the water flow at intervals that coincide to the plants’ hydration needs, thus conserving water and energy. LED lights embedded in the base of the screen illuminate the organic shapes creating an appealing ambiance.
