Cellule, a snap-together modular lattice system designed by NYTO Studios, is perfect for urban spaces, both outdoors and indoors. Each module has mounting features for cable ties that attach to railings, and a generous hole for screwing into wood, drywall, siding, brick, or concrete. The included cap hides all mounting hardware.
The 63mm (2.48”) depth and generous openings enable climbing plants to easily weave through the lattice, and its inter-connectability allows for easy expansion as your plants grow.
In northern climates, when plant life has died off in the winter months, the remaining lattice structure will beautify urban garden walls for the rest of the season. Made from UV stabilized polypropylene, Cellule is fully recyclable.
The product is not yet available for production, but interested consumers can “pre-pay” $36.15 for it by visiting the Joy de Vivre store. Employing a method called “crowdsourcing” to fund the development of new product ideas, Joy de Vivre pre-sells the production of a product to raise the capital required to manufacture it. The purchase price is placed in a development fund where it remains until the minimum funding requirements have been met. They do not commit to production until they are satisfied with the quality and functionality of the prototype.
