american designers daniel licalzi and paul genberg have developed a solution to help aid the visual pollution caused by air conditioners sticking out from one’s window. influenced by the hanging garden’s of babylon, ‘babilawn’, the faux grass mat attaches to the top of the A/C unit, giving users the opportunity to decorate their ‘lawn’ with miniature ornaments such as a white picket fence, yellow or blue daisies, and even a garden gnome. secured with strong rare earth magnets, the injected molded plastic addition fits any size air conditioner, and is made up of 7.5 inch x 10.5 inch lightweight grass sections.
