Suitcase urban farming

By Design Academy Eindhoven Graduation Project

The design of this project involves the metaphor of a suitcase as a symbol of cultural background. We all are use to saying that wherever we move, we bring with us our backpack of culture, background… our so-called ‘bag of experiences’. The design takes influence from this picture and it transforms it into the product of movable, soil-filled suitcases.

Families can grow vegetables and fruit on the sides of the bags. Each one of them allows the growth of about thirty-six different plants, which can sprout vertically along the fabric.
