Vine-covered fences become gorgeous sights to behold, making the concept of the PiantaLa by Andrea Rekalidis a charming one. This is an enclosure system that has been designed to deliberately encourage the growth of climbing plants, so to showcase the beauty of organic growth and to naturally cultivate a partition of increasing privacy.
This delightful design won the Sunlab 2012 Contest based on its wonderfully iconic appearance and its fresh function. The structure of each segment has been manufactured of metal rods that form a line resembling a picket fence, filled in lightly with a diamond lattice. The espalier can be implanted directly into one's lawn or embedded into regularly placed flower pots. PiantaLa by Andrea Rekalidis has a sweet and subtle visual character that enhances the elaborate beauty of garden greenery.
