The ‘Kibako' Green Trunk

By: Elsa Blaine - Published: Oct 13, 2008 • References: greenupgrader
Kibako, is a leather and wood trunk designed to house a miniature indoor garden. Also known as The Green Trunk, it was designed in France by Pinel & Pinel, a company renowned for their luxury luggage and trunks.

Bonsai plants are perfect for the gardener without a yard, and this grow box suits the tiny trees perfectly. It is outfitted with an Osram 80w horticultural light, two drawers used to collect overflow water and a kit of bonsai maintenance tools. The leather exterior is available in 51 colours and is trimmed with heavy nickel-plated brass hardware.

Is The Green Trunk practical? That is yet to be determined, but the company has designed trunks for bikes, picnics and iPods, a movie theatre in a case, and even a Pocket Office, so why not a boxed garden for the indoors? Stats for Luggage Gardens Trending: Older & Chilly
