These two window pane hacks are perfect for small, urban apartments where space is limited. Barreau&Charbonnet’s ‘Volet végétal‘ is a design that creates a new space for growing vegetables. Users attach the structure to the outside of their windows, creating a window pane of plants that lowers from the top, anchored by hinges at the bottom and controlled by pulleys. Check out the video below to see it in action:

Red dot award winner ‘Blindry‘ is a window blind that folds down into a laundry rack for drying clothes indoors. Designed by Kim Bobin and Ko Kyungeun, it uses sunlight to dry the laundry and leaves floor space unhindered.
