New from Moonish of Brooklyn: furniture that grows vines. Designers Giovanna and Matt Taylor used balsa wood models to create a stylish collection of tables and shelves with built-in trellis components:

“Maintaining the five-inch trellis cell as a base unit, we can customize the size of the pieces and even combine different modules to create one larger piece,” says Giovanna.

“Lattice, with its grid structure, proved to be a perfect functional furniture making element,” says Giovanna. “The side table was the winner for us and we expanded on the concept.”
