Wouldn’t be great to work in the middle of a dense mini-jungle or to display your favorite plants in a different way? Swedish studio kauppi & kauppi brings us “Limbus Greenframe” project which is a minimalist wooden frame that celebrates potted plants and greenery.

“I wanted to investigate how much a floor screen could be simplified, when everything except the naked elegant wood frame was reduced, I became interested in seeing what it could be filled with. I often long for the forest and have a beautiful norfolk pine at my desk, which always makes me happy”

“Perhaps my plants could fit in the frame? To make plants grow and prosper, light is needed. Glimakra of Sweden has great knowledge of wood production and did a great job when managed to integrate the lighting in the top of the frame and to conceal the technology in the frame itself. The result is a stripped and restrained furniture in solid wood, a mixture of a room divider, green furniture and light fixture.”
