Designer Caroline Brahme has invented a planter that consists of concrete blocks hosting green plants and named ‘Grey To Green’.
Brahme decided to design a product that strengthens urban green living for the growing population in an urban environment. According to Caroline Brahme, plants in the city not only clean the air and regulate temperature but they are also essential for people’s well-being. With a shape of paving stones, each of the planters can fit up to 8 plants. The product can be purchased via Greenworks.
Caroline Brahme says:
With this project, I am questioning the amount of space allowed for greenery in the city. Pushing the borders of where it is acceptable or unacceptable, and aspiring to lead the way for a new way of thinking when planning the many impervious surfaces in the city. Not separating the green and the grey, but mixing them. Bringing the green into the grey. Considering the rate of urban growth in the world today, I believe that this is really necessary for both the city and the people who live in it to function well in the future.
