The Airbox Plant Display
Perspex® acrylic gives vertical growing the edge
The Airbox™ has been designed by award winning Landscape Architect Jade Goto. She developed the design concept whilst thinking about how to provide greening solutions for urban dwellers with limited or no outside space. The low maintenance yet high aesthetic value of air plants (Tillandsia) made them the perfect plants to design a space for.... and so the Airbox was born.
With air plant displays becoming more and more popular Jade saw a gap in the market for a simple, clean, contemporary design in which to display these beautiful plants.
Made from 5mm thick Perspex® acrylic, the Airbox measures 400 x 600 x 150mm, or there is the option of the Airbox Mini (500 x 500 x 5mm). Up to 15 plants can be displayed by inserting the wire wrapped roots of the air plants into the laser drilled holes of the Perspex® acrylic, offering a soil free, low maintenance vertical garden. The Airbox even features a tray for submerging the plants for their weekly water.
The Airbox is available in a range of colours; Perspex® Glass-Look, Perspex® Fluorescent Neptune Blue and Perspex® Fluorescent Mars Red. Alternatively, if you have a favourite Perspex® Colour, bespoke orders are accepted.
Jade Goto chose to use Perspex® acrylic for the Airbox ever since it’s concept stage, “choosing a material was an easy decision, with the appearance of glass and half the weight, Perspex® acrylic helps the Airbox achieve it’s clean lines and minimal appearance”. Perspex® Fluorescent colours give Airbox a bold, yet contemporary look.
The Airbox is currently only available to buy in the UK and retails at £195.00 for the full size and £95 for the Airbox Mini.
