Urbio Indoor Vertical Garden Clever Magnetised System

[17/10/11] 

Urbio is a vertical garden system which uses magnets to hang plants on your walls. It’s particularly apt for Hong Kong where space is limited - and we all know how important plants are for your sense of wellbeing. If only there were a couple more petunias in Japanese offices we’d be looking at a much chirpier work force.

This video explains how Urbio works but the basic idea is the pots can stick to each other as well as metallic surfaces. You can arrange them in all sorts of formations which makes them amusing to play with, particularly in a new form of magnetised Jenga we’re hoping to patent.

We know they’re not going to blow anyone away but they look good enough and most of us have to make compromises in Hong Kong when it comes to space. They’re essentially an affordable solution to the lack of gardens in the city.  Prices range from US$20 for a single pot to US$200 which gets you plenty of pots as well as several wall mounting plates.

You can pre-order now for the company’s first shipment in January and while they won’t look like the hanging gardens of Babylon, your mates will still be very impressed when you harvest some fresh mint for their mojitos.
