Home Living : July 3rd 2012
MB HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, July 3, 2012 1 Inside SOAKING IN STYLE AUDIT CUTS WINTER BILL TABLE TALK OF THE TOWN THINGS ARE LOOKING UP GROWING PLANT TREND Janita Singh Adam Cornish's designs help make the most of hanging space. SPACE SAVERS DEFYING GRAVITY It s all about cleverly using the space around you to decorate, and gardeners are rising to the challenge -- and the sky s the limit. With this in mind, a new product by Zanui is not only gravity-defying but a sure-fire conversation starter in every home. The Boskke Sky Planter turns the art of growing greenery on its head. You can create a striking scene with this collection of clever, compact and eco-chic upside-down planters, which will make an easy transition into any modern living space. This exciting innovation for indoor plants is self-watering, water-efficient and enables anyone to fill a room with beautiful plants without sacrificing floor space. They come in three sizes. Price ranges from $19.90 to $59.90. Details: www.zanui.com.au/boskke. WITH space increasingly becoming a luxury in mod- ern lifestyles, we are start- ing to look at innovative ways to garden. Hot trends are hardly us- ing any floor space -- instead looking straight up for in- spiration and developing vertical gardening con- cepts. But there's more. At the recent designEx exhi- bition at the Sydney Con- vention and Exhibition Centre, Melbourne designer Adam Cornish reached for the skies in a new fashion -- with his playful Monkey Pot System, exhibited on a 10m hanging chain. Cornish's in- stallation aimed to show- case the potential for using vertical space more intelli- gently. ''My intention with the 10m-high hanging chain of monkeys was to demonstrate to architects and interior designers how they can be linked together in large in- stallations to create beautiful green walls and chains of foliage,'' he said. ''I wanted to create a kind of green graffiti for interiors of buildings. Longer chains allow the plants to be hung in multi-story applications, such as atriums, foyers and in central staircases.''
