Biocubo / Furniture


Biocubo symbolizes coexistence between two conflicting worlds: nature and industry. It intends to offer for nature a chance to develop in an urban environment, on a practical, functional, and decorative furniture. A glass sphere, in its center, works as a mini-greenhouse that allows to follow plant’s growth and to protect it from external environment. The glass, totally recyclable, provides complete plant visualization, since root until leaves. Biocubo is a modular object with interchangeable parts, it adds some functions as table of center, fruit bowl, and environment thick partition wall.
