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.
