Designed by Florent Coirier, Grégory Marion and Laurianne Lopez for Vertilignes, Ukiyo-e makes use of vertisol. This special soil developed by Vertilab is a mixture of an organic and a non-organic component to enhance the plant's time span. This soil allows the time between watering to be longer than usual.
In Japanese, ukiyo-e has three meanings:
Images of the floating world
Images of the world which passes
Images of the unstable world
These allusions to enigma are embodied by the planter, whose suspension offers a new perspective on indoor gardening.
Raising the garden to a new height adds both mystery and respect to the aesthetics and satisfaction provided by this patch of green.
