French Designer, Clement Sarrodie, has a design concept for a collection of three hydroponic furniture pieces. Each piece is designed to house a range of plants and maintain their water needs. The collection could help to infuse herbaceous and green lifestyle into compact urban living. The design offers multi-purpose functionality with the Figo model, which uses gravity to distribute water to the 4 tiered potting shelves, but the modular structure could also be positioned as a false wall or the shelves could be mixed up to hold books, pictures and plants. The urban minded planter is comprised of recycled plastic materials further offsetting the carbon impact for owners.

The Teburu and Jiki designs creatively display plants. Teburu table encloses plants in a coffee table tank covered by a glass top so that people can easily see the greenery. The Jiki showcases the plants roots by exposing the bottom of the table top terrarium. The range of furniture gives a refreshing look at how to include more nature into our daily lives.
