"Let's grow some more balls!"

Let’s grow some balls! by Doreen Westphal

Let´s grow some balls! is a combination of lounge chair and plant container from recycled plastic. The design is a spontaneous and yes; very direct reaction on the 'tegenlicht' documentary here in Holland which introduced the cradle2cradle production principle. Let's grow some balls! is a call to us designers to take more responsibility for the things we make.

I presented this object in april at the Salone Internazionale de Mobile as part of the Tuttobene ( exhibition in the Via Tortona.
Depending on the plants ones grows inside the ball the shape changes every time. Mediteranian herbal garden, tulips or exotic plants, you can even grow a roof but the chair keeps it's strong appearance.
