'JAILmake' is bringing the garden to the dinner table with the fantastic Plantable, which combines the unlikely combination of eating and planting at the same time.

Some people don't have the option of eating in the backyard when the weather's nice, so the Plantable is as close as anyone else will get to eating with nature. According to the studio, the whole idea behind this piece was to reintroduce "nature back into the experience of gathering, cooking and eating a meal." The legs function as trestles for plants to grow in, while the feet itself act as planters. JAILmake tested out how well this works by planting climbers, tomatoes, herbs and sweet peas; so far, they've had success.

With space for food and nature, the Plantable will beautifully complement any home.
