Industrial Horticulture

Inspired by post-Soviet architecture, St. Petersburg-based designer Maxim Scherbakov has created a series of modular planters designed to simulate urban / industrial environments.  Made of concrete and wood, the planters have gaps, holes and hatches where the plants are expected to struggle through, just as they would in a real urban landscape.  Whether this constitutes cruelty to plants is unclear, but we certainly love the industrial look and sculptural quality of the planters.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
