Roots, a hanging garden for the home

The Roots collection – unveiled last April at the Salone Satellite, the Milan Furniture Fair’s showcase of work by young designers – is one of Valencian company Mut Design’s most original, daring ideas.

 

It consists of stackable plant holder-supporting frames which reach different heights and come in different angles. It takes inspiration from – and aims to simulate – the way a creeper grows. China pots containing flowers are slotted into each plant holder, made of beechwood. The idea is to create the feel of a small or hanging garden in the home – or you can simply treat the piece as a decorative feature or room divider.

 

The dynamic, elegant piece’s legs also incorporate lamps which illuminate the plants and create a mysterious environment of shadows cast by them.

 

Mut Design strives to create designs which connect emotionally with nature and with the personal memories of those who look at its products – take, for example its rocking chair-cum-seesaw, Ulah, recently created for Expormim. Alberto Sánchez, a graduate of industrial design and graphic design, heads up the company.
