The architects and sisters, Luisa and Lilian Parrado received international recognition at 2017 European Product Design Award with a bronze prize for their Garden Module, a product that intends to enable and promote the creation of green walls through a three dimensional and simple modular system.
According to the designers, the goal of this project was to create an elegant, flexible and viable option for green panels. Each module has an irregular shape that creates a slightly connexion to each other, allowing all kinds of compositions and filling with green any empty wall.
The structure is made of steel tubes that are not welded, but connected with a polypropylene string, which makes the structure flexible and gives advantage on packaging and storage. Two triangular concrete bases per module support the plants, naturally fitting the frame with no need of screws or other interference on the peaces, reinforcing one of the main characteristics of the sisters design.
