Anna-Katharina Beck / GreenThumb

Humans always had a strong connection with nature. So bringing plants into our homes was straightforward. With the GreenThumb-concept, I want to help public and private spaces to become greener. The modules can be used as room dividers or can be placed on the wall. We use evergreen plants which will be planted in soil of sisal and coconut fibre. The right water supply is assured by clay struts in the soil. This autonomous process works completely without electricity. Refilling is also simply done on the top of the tank. The lighting module emits warm and soft daylight.
