The modern containers have magnetic backing that allow for easy mounting on special wall panels, or they can stick to each other to form sculptural centerpieces.</p> <p><iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/22978821?title=0&amp;byline=0&amp;portrait=0" width="620" height="349" frameborder="0"></iframe></p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="469" title="Design, urbio, planter" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2011/08/29/urbio_04.jpg?1314638374" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/urbio-modular-and-magnetic-urban-garden" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/urbio-modular-and-magnetic-urban-garden#comments decor design home accessories industrial plant sustainability Sat, 27 Aug 2011 02:12:20 +0000 jessicapatterson 3274 at http://design.org Tear Away Wallpaper from ZNAK http://design.org/blog/tear-away-wallpaper-znak <p><a href="http://www.znak-life.com/" target="ZNAK">ZNAK</a>, in collaboration with Studio Hausen and Aldo Kroese, created Tears Off wallpaper to customize walls and spaces.
