Plant the fence


PiantaLà redesigns the iconic symbol of the fence by reducing it to a graphic sign. A partition made of metal rod to be planted directly in the soil or in the pots, the grid allows the vine growing that creates the visual separation.

Stripped is made out of one branch only, which is split into three parts beneath. As a result, the legs of a standing lamp are made. The bark is almost entirely pealed from the branch and with a rotating movement formed into a lamp-shade.
