Eating with Plants!

JAILmake is the creative partnership of Liam Healy and Jamie Elliott, two designers who’s is  studio based out of South East London.
One of our favorite designs is  “The Plantable” that  reintroduces nature back into the experience of gathering, cooking and eating a meal. It takes a currently domesticated object and enables nature to claim it back.
The space provided for plants to grow in the four legs reflects on the distance we place between ourselves and the processes involved in making our food. They’ve tried and tested climbers, tomatoes, herbs and sweet peas.
The Plantable is hand made in their workshops in South East London, where each leg is hand bent and fillet brazed into the framework. A hand made English oak top is then placed over it, for plenty to sit around and enjoy.
Here are some images of this innovative design.
