Homegrown Root Furniture

Conceptual furniture project by designer Kai Linke proposes the idea of growing furniture from plant roots.

Homegrown Root FurnitureSays Dezeen,

"Kai's experiments so far involve cultivating fast-growing plants such as grass, cress, bulbs and bamboo and chanelling their roots into a miniature chair-shaped mold. Once the roots have completely filled the mould it is removed, leaving a scale model of a piece of furniture.

This exploration is the first stage of a long term project, which Linke hopes will result in a full size chair made of roots."

Mold Making principles +a little Gardening = makes for some pretty wild Furniture Design. Still in the experimental phase, but very cool idea.
