A room within a room for nature. Designer duo Atelier 2+ have created a mini version of their Greenhouse for housing a herb garden or small terrarium environment. Created from a solid ash frame with a modernist house vernacular, Greenhouse Mini is a product that is as beautiful as it is functional.
Worapong Manupipatpong and Ada Chirakranont are Atelier 2+, a Bangkok-based design studio. The duo studied at KMITL in Bangkok and at Konstfack in Stockholm and their designs show that Scandinavian Design is a concept that is not limited by nationality. In their work they seek to erase the boundaries between architecture and furniture, art and design.
“The Greenhouse series is a product of our stay in Sweden,” Worapong Manupipatpong explains. “When we were living in Sweden we felt the need to get closer to nature and to make room inside our dwelling for the nature that surrounds us.” “But,” they point out, “perhaps the size of Greenhouse encourages people to create miniature worlds because it is not large enough for people merely to plant just anything in it. It makes demands on the user, perhaps requiring green fingers or the sensitive touch of a sculptor.”
