bag for plants

the transportable gardenBACSAC® was born when french designer godefroy de virieu met landscapers louis de fleurieu and virgile desurmont. together, they searched for an alternative solution to avoid the constraints of creating a roof garden in town (taking into consideration difficulties of transport, excessive weight, etc).

the idea of planting in bags emerged from the desire to change habits and valorize what should be, the plant itself. they then start the manufacturing of bags made from permeable/porous geo-textile that prevents asphyxiation of the soil.

the new square collection was recently shown at maison et objet 2010 in paris.
