Lustables: The Urbio Modular, Vertical Garden

It’s vertical, it’s modular, it’s magnetic…hence lustable. 

As if a vertical garden wasn’t sexy enough, take a look at the new modular vertical. I think we can all agree that this is the year horizontal greenery officially became passé.

Of the moment, the Urbio, a collaboration between Beau Oyler, Jared Aller and the Enlisted Design team.

What it is: neutrally white recyclable “eco-plastic” pots (a kind of imitation ceramic) that can be mounted on just about any vertical surface with neodymium magnets. Because of the Urbio’s modularity (plus modernity and adaptability), plant pots can be purchased individually or as part of the larger wall mounting plate pack.

Check out this video, from their original Kickstarter campaign, to see the Urbio in action.
