This Brussels Boutique Uses Cactus Plants Indoors as Railings

Cactus plants indoors are not an unusual thing to find, but JDS Architects used them in an unconventional way in its design of this 'Siblingsfactory' shop in Brussels.

The interior features many conventional materials like wood and concrete, but one of the most captivating parts of the design is that the team used tall cactus plants to line the perimeter of the boutique's second floor instead of a traditional metal or glass railing. Unlike a normal railing, people cannot lean or grab onto it without painful consequences.

Hopefully this quirky design will encourage people to keep their distance from these cactus-made railings and prevent anyone from falling to the first floor. However dangerous it may seem, this novel design will definitely brings some interest and foot traffic to the Siblingsfactory boutique.
