Looking for an environmentally-friendly way to add some comfort to your home? Thanks to Nucleo, a “collective of artists and designers directed by Piergiorgio Robino based in Torino, Italy,” you can grow your own lawn furniture. Doesn’t this look heavenly?
The project Terra v2.0 Growing Furniture appeared for the first time at the Milan Salone Satellite in 2000, and was selected for the XIX Compasso d’Oro as a ‘Product for the Community’ Award in 2001. The project was abandoned in 2005, and now it’s back, and we couldn’t be happier!
