Innovation and research
When there is a problem responding with creativity is the solution, but it requires balance and competence.
In particular I have developed a system to grow plants in elevation, nothing complex, it is to raise the planters higher than normal, then masking them with the most diverse finishes, resemble walls from the top of which is born “green”.
When to use such a system? When the environments are small and you want to turn into green places, small terraces or balconies, or to delimit a border where you look for an alternative to the hedge.
During the Fuorisalone 2017 at Casa Formentini in via Formentini, 1 in Milan, I presented and experimented another area of use, in a building of the ‘700 there was a need for a separate collection room and was born “Lost in Time and Place “. At first it was a temporary installation, but then the property wanted to stabilize the work that can now be visited, compared to the exhibition object I have adapted the botany and subtracted complexity.
The success of these planters comes from the substrate (where plants root) used, from the botanical choices and the irrigation project.
The garden or the terrace when night falls, they transform, the magic of the lighting transforms it.
Not finding on the market a lamp suitable to illuminate Graminaceae plants and other perennials, I designed and created “fairy dust” used for the first time in “Concluded with Tact” garden winner of the “Golden Leaf of Lake Como” in the of the “Creative gardens” international competition at Orticolario 2015.
