Space10 is the name of an innovation hub that was founded by Swedish furniture retailer IKEA in 2015. Both a research lab and an exhibition space, the group has created the Growroom prototype, which has recently featured at the Chart Art Fair in Copenhagen.
The dome-like structure is filled with various plants that are closely stored in a confined space, all with the hopes of showcases a new concept regarding sustainability.
With such a small number of green areas in urban centres, the Growroom aims to inspire interest in urban farming to held add some much-needed greenery to cities and other heavy urban areas. The idea is that you can easily grow our own produce without putting any additional stress on the environment.
The eco-friendly Growroom is the idea of Danish architects Mads-Ulrik Husum and Sine Lindholm. The design features rows of stacked plant boxes into structure to be filled with various plants and vegetables.
Better still, the Growroom also has an area where you can sit inside and be removed from the everyday hustle and bustle of a city, with the ability to surround yourself with various vegetation that provide a fantastic aroma.
