DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Lab

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multifunctional Planter

INSPIRATION:
Showing relationships with a chemistry lab and life, LAB talks about how humans control nature and in contradistinction how nature takes hold of what humans have created. This ecosystem lives in between industry and nature.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
LAB brings and easy and stylish way to cultivate indoor plants. You can configure its size to fit different areas and its lights allow the plants to be in spaces with not enough natural light sources. It is a modular structure that allows you to play with different configurations of glass containers, which you can use as planters or light sources. The design considers containers for terrariums, hydroponics and for the traditional way of cultivation. The light system is installed in some containers so you can put it in different positions too.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The user is able to add extra pieces to the main module making the final structure as big as he wants. The plants are planted in the glass containers and then supported on the structure. LAB transmits order, simplicity and the feeling of being in control of the plants and their growth in a different space from its natural habitat.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
After working with visual artists, the designer´s paradigm about functions of objects/products have changed, reinforcing the communicational function of design. In this case is the actual relationships between humans and nature.

CHALLENGE:
The biggest challenge for the designer was to translate all his thoughts about the coexistence of humans and nature into a functional object and to decide to what extent the design and production process should be chaotic or controlled.
