The newest IKEA garden is simply the most heavenly thing you’ve ever seen. It is big enough to contain almost anything you can imagine, meaning home grown products will no longer be an issue.
Called the Growroom, this garden is a DIY project that is 9ft tall and has spherical shape that enables plants to grow right before your very eyes.
IKEA has become one of the leading brands in the world that sells practical, easy to make and cheaper versions of almost everything you need.
They have also been included in many other projects, such as the Syrian refugee issue and caring for the environment by creating mushroom-based packaging that decompose in just a few weeks.
This means their furniture is as good as it can get.
The garden project was a new breakthrough for IKEA, as they managed to find the perfect way to combine the plant, vegetable and other herb growing industry with affordability and comfort.
To build this garden, you’ll need tools like plywood, rubber hammers, metal screws, and a simple manual orientation elaborated through 17 easy steps. Media reports note The Growroom comes in a much larger package than usual, so you’ll probably need to get on some plywood cutting as well.
For now, the gardens are planned for a built in Taipei, Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco, and Helsinki. This will help neighborhoods get everything they need without putting too much effort into it. You can apply to have a garden of this sort built in your own neighborhood as well.
Here is how the company defined and described the project:
“Local food represents a serious alternative to the global food model. It reduces food miles, our pressure on the environment, and educates our children of where food actually comes from. … The challenge is that traditional farming takes up a lot of space and space is a scarce resource in our urban environments.
The Growroom …is designed to support our everyday sense of wellbeing in the cities by creating a small oasis or ‘pause’ architecture in our high paced societal scenery, and enables people to connect with nature as we smell and taste the abundance of herbs and plants.
The pavilion, built as a sphere, can stand freely in any context and points in a direction of expanding contemporary and shared architecture.”
