While plants will thrive in a greenhouse, their permanent location in the sunniest spot in your urban garden can come with drawbacks. In the warmer months, plants may prefer a little shade – and you might fancy your turn in the sun. Now, a portable greenhouse that can be rolled like a wheelbarrow offers the solution – and is an aesthetically pleasing object in its own right.
The ‘Bramber’, from Netherlands-based company Revised, is made from stainless steel and aluminum by British designer David Le Versha, who brings his extensive ironmongery experience to beautifully crafted Victorian-inspired objects. The thoughtful design features an angled profile, and hardware that allows for the easy replacement of the safety glass, ensuring longevity of the product. Plants that require a little less humidity will be grateful for the glass lid, which can be held open in various positions, while the two handles mean the greenhouse can be wheeled around easily. Access the plants for watering by simply raising the tilting windows.
‘We wanted to have an authentic look and feel to the greenhouse, but without the rust from steel and putty,’ says Revised co-founder and art director Casper Vissers of the modern design. ‘It is all about caring for your cuttings and your seeds once planted. If they need a little sunlight, you roll the wheelhouse into the sunlight, if they need shade when it's too hot, you roll it into the shade. In the winter you could decide to bring the wheelhouse into the garage.’
The compact Bramber, available in four colours – sand, rust, black and white – is neatly proportioned, making it the perfect addition to a garden or back yard when space is limited. Built to last, it comes with a 100-year guarantee on its construction, promising a piece that can be enjoyed for years to come.
