OrtoBrick is a cutting edge green design object for a new and conscious Urban Agriculture by the Italian landscape designer Tommaso Mancini. It is a small and solid brick of fertile Tuscan soils containing seeds of horticultural plants. Orto in Italian means Vegetable Garden: if cultivated, OrtoBrick easily generates a micro vegetable garden to be tended to. The brick is conceived to be used in cities: it can grow in the office, at home, on a desk, or in the kitchen. It is a seedbed designed to let users experience the early growing stages: it is a sustainable, symbolic, practical, and educational project.
OrtoBrick is created to promote environmental sustainability and knowledge about Plants. 100% natural and handmade.
