Shanghai-based designer Hiroyuki Shinohara’s latest project, Transportable Farm, showcases urban food production at its smallest scale.
Shinohara has created a mini office farm from the office’s everyday waste materials, including bottle caps and used coffee filters. The results are growing wildly: radish sprouts are growing from recycled bottle caps, a desk drawer is used as an incubator, and a light table finds new life as an overnight farm.
The team then harvest the organic vegetables for a communal and healthy lunch. The farm animates an office space and works towards a zero-waste system.
