Maison & Objet 2014: Home Horticulture

Bulbo at Maison & Objet 2014

Showing for the first time at interior design trade fair Maison & Objet, Italian brand Bulbo aims to bring horticulture into the home and allow urban dwellers to grow produce indoors all year round. 

Launched late 2013, its collection of LED-powered home gardening systems improves the growth of plants by recreating sunlight conditions to promote photosynthesis. Suitable for growing fruit, vegetables or flowers, the range includes pendant lights in terracotta that hang above individual pots and minimal countertop frame structures for multiple plants. The brand has also developed applications for the same technology to be inbuilt into kitchens for integrated functionality. 

With a reported one in three US households now growing some of the food they eat, the demand for at-home gardening products is increasing. For more on the growth of urban food production, see Future Farming, and look to the Personal Horticulture section of NYC x Design 2014

More Maison & Objet coverage will be coming soon to Stylus. In the meantime, take a look back at our reports from the show earlier this year
