The tabletop planter, which was created for label Design House Stockholm, is an even more compact version of Atelier 2+ Greenhouse, a standing planter box.

The Greenhouse Mini launched at last week's Stockholm Furniture Fair and is intended as a tabletop home for miniature gardens.

The plantbox has glass windows and a pitched roof – reminiscent of traditional Swedish houses – formed by a solid ash frame. A galvanised metal tray that slots into the base, while the top lifts off for owners to tend to plants.

Atelier 2+'s earlier Greenhouse design was created for Wallpaper's annual Handmade exhibition, and features a larger planter that sits on a trestle.

The studio's founders, Worapong Manupipatpong and Ada Chirakranont, were prompted to create the greenhouse after time spent studying in Stockholm.

"When we were living in Sweden we felt the need to get closer to nature and to make room inside our dwelling for the nature that surrounds us," said Manupipatpong.

"Perhaps the size of Greenhouse encourages people to create miniature worlds because it is not large enough for people merely to plant just anything in it," he added. "It makes demands on the user, perhaps requiring greener fingers or the sensitive touch of a sculptor."
