Greenhouse Mini Ash
“Greenhouse is a product of our stay in Sweden,” Worapong Manupipatpong explains. “When we were living in Sweden we felt the need to get closer to nature and to make room inside our dwelling for the nature that surrounds us.” “But,” they point out, “perhaps the size of Greenhouse encourages people to create miniature worlds because it is not large enough for people merely to plant just anything in it. It makes demands on the user, perhaps requiring green fingers or the sensitive touch of a sculptor.” “Usually we work with larger-scale projects,” Ada Chirakranont adds, “projects that are in the borderland between art and design,” she continues. Like all good art, Greenhouse speaks to our feelings in a way that furniture do not. There are many labels that fit Greenhouse: furniture, object, sculpture. The Atelier 2 Greenhouse is made from lacquered solid ash timber with panes of toughened glass and a planting tray made of galvanized metal.
