Terrariums are beautiful little ecosystems in miniature and are usually grown in clear containers of various kinds, including lightbulbs. Though they're usually for display, Italian designer Fiore Arcangelo imagines a multi-functional terrarium -- one large enough to sit on.
ECOO is... perfectly adaptable to each type of ambiance, thanks to its elegance and clean form, and is conceived in the category of medium-large seating, with a red steel frame base.
Plants -- the best to use are hardy ones -- are grown in the lower part of the seat, while water and air can be brought in from the open upper part of the seat.
This is a clever way to integrate plants and furniture to ensure more green in a living space; similar to other examples we've seen such as plant-tables, pendant lamps that double as mini-greenhouses, or mushroom-inoculated garden chairs. More details on Fiore Arcangelo's website (in Italian).
