Green Shutter / Building Shutter

Green Shutter
Green Shutter

The concrete jungles--especially those with dense skyscrapers--are always awe-inspiring. For this reason, Green Shutter is aiming to present a whole new perspective of the cities. Combined with the idea of greening, the goal is to provide a friendly experience to people related to the buildings, inside and outside alike.
The product consists of resin boards where plants can be planted on top of them, and recycle water from the building. During operation, with solar cell installed, the boards can adjust themselves for maximum sunlight exposure and a nice shading cover for indoors. The solar energy goes into LEDs at the back of the boards.
