During the Milan Design Week 2012, Werner Aisslinger presented his Chair Farm kit at Ventura Lambrate. The Berlin and Singapore-based designer and architect created this prototype to give us a preview on the future of furniture. Aisslinger sees possibilities for new agricultural experiments in urban farming and therefore created a new way of resource-conserving local furniture development instead of globalized serial manufacturing.
The Chair Farm kit prototype consists of a white perforated steel corset wherein the vegetation grows to be a full naturally grown chair when is reaches maturity. The corset is placed in a little greenhouse that is filled with all the materials that makes the chair grow faster.
Growing your own chair probably would take a while but in the mean time this construction doesn't look bad in your garden either.
