The Tumbleweed project, in reference to the rolling bushes of the North-American desert, is conceived as a way of dramatizing the growth of indoor plants. The creation of a 3-dimensional volume from the folds of a plane surface forms an ideal support for the foliage of developing plants. The structure also has a life of its own as a suspended cloud…

Tumbleweed is an open system of unlimited spatial expansion which adapts wonderfully to all places and situations. Thanks to the support, the plants grip the surfaces, crawl along the wall or invade the ceiling horizontally. It’s fresh and constantly evolving form dresses the space like a living work of art or a dream garden.
