To build it up and let it grow

Lue is a modular, sustainable, vertical, and hydroponic green wall system.

With Lue the user can create his unique green wall or tower in a variety of shapes. We specialize in hydroponic soilless planting, a environmentally friendly way of urban gardening. Our water system functions independently. Our vessels are 3d-printed with aesthetically pleasing Filament out of industrial waste like coffee beans, shells and wheat.


Company/Institution
FHNW HGK Basel
In the Experimental Design Master Studio, current and future living environments are critically questioned and redesigned. We investigate processes and translate a norm-critical, post-disciplinary and post-anthropocentric stance into an experimental design practice. Research-based engagement with current social and environmental challenges such as climate change, social inequality, demographic change, and technological transformations of our living worlds is fundamental to students' work.
