Turn your fridge (or any metal surface) into a small forest! These plastic leaf magnets were originally designed by Richard Hutten for the office ceilings of the Boijmans van Beuningen museum in Rotterdam but are now being put into production by office furniture manufacturers Gispen.
â€œSince it's a magnet, you can apply it to any metal surface,â€ says Hutton. â€œI did my whole fridge with it. A sort of a bush.â€
The leaves are available in assorted colors so you can create a vibrant green Spring or a moody Autumn if you like.
