There are plenty of ways to bring greenery into the home, and the Ecortina provides a particularly appealing solution. Inspired by the folded paper aesthetic of origami, this product is a curtain of connected pockets that can hold many herbs and assorted items.

Xavier Vilalta pleated water-proof material into zigzags, aligning them and interweaving them to produce an air- and light-permeable partition. The suspended green wall would function well as a drapery alternative, diffusing direct rays from the sun and using them to cultivate all sorts of blossoms and foliage by the window. The unconventional Ecortina flower pots can even be opened up in the bottoms to let water pass through, hydrating the soil in each of the pockets beneath.
