We first met Eva Marguerre at DMY Berlin 2009 where she was presenting her NIDO stool.
An object that was subsequently to stalk us for the next 12 months.
Wherever we turned up. There it was.
Wonderful as it is. You can have too much of a good thing.
After moving to Hamburg Eva established Studio Besau-Marguerre with Marcel Besau, and the pair have gone on to develop some very interesting projects.
The MOA collection, for example, only just missed out on the DMY Award 2011, was however snapped up by Paris based manufacturer Petite Friture.
And their “Greenhouse to go” has now been nominated for the Designpreis der Bundesrepublik Deutschland
A new take on the somewhat jaded terrarium, the press material to “Greenhouse to go” tells a wonderful tale of it being developed so that in the future we can transport plants to other planets.
That as may be.
We’re just enjoying the delightful aesthetic of the object - we’re thinking faux Victorian - and the consideration if one could also use it to keep stick insects and ladybirds in…..
Tic-Tac box v2.0. As it were.
But regardless how you view it, Greenhouse to go by Studio Besau-Marguerre is a delightful project and a worthy further development of Eva and Marcel’s portfolio.
