Modular Vertical Garden Brings Green to Urban Walls

April 2, 2011 by

Urbio is a new magnetic-backed and modular vertical garden system that easily enables you to bring green to empty urban walls. As urban dwellers, or those who live and work in small spaces, it can be difficult to find an area in which to exercise one’s green thumb. Urbio’s magnetic system can transform any wall or ferrous surface into a beautiful vertical garden.

Each eco-plastic pot is equipped with large neodymium magnets strong enough to hold almost anything on the wall. The modular wall plates can easily be mounted to any surface on a balcony, rooftop, or even the fridge door. Mount just one Urbio pot, or fill your wall with a number of them of varying sizes.

The system includes small, medium, and large vessels or pots, wall plates, and individual wall mount pucks that can connect the pots to each other or mount them to the wall.

Experiment connecting together different sized pots to create your own unique centerpiece or a focal point. The pots are removable, making it easy to water them or take out for planting. The flexibility extends outside the garden into the playroom, kitchen, bathroom, and office. Use the system to store art supplies, cooking utensils, small tools…endless possibilities.

Urbio’s designers have launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds for completing the tooling portion of the project in order to bring the product to market. They are offering a great deal on the product in various forms in exchange for a pledge. For as little as $20, you can get yourself a small pot with a single wall mount puck. $200 gets you an entire system: four small pots, 3 medium pots, one large pot, nine wall mount plates, and 6 single wall mount plates.

Urbio is a collaborative effort between two studios: Enlisted Design and Volare. Enlisted Design is a boutique product design studio in the San Francisco Bay Area partnered by Beau Oyler and Jared Aller. Volare is a China-based firm specializing in product development and design manufacturing. Learn more or get yourself some Urbio on Kickstarter.

    Nice design! these pots definitely look cool, but it would be good to know what they are made of? Do we really need more new plastic containers?

    interesting request to raise funds for the tooling….i like the idea a lot – something similar was built in the UK using red magnetic rectangles – it looks very funky but is very expensive –

    will the magnetic loose grip over time?

    Thanks for your comments on Urbio!
    Here’s a few answers to your questions:
    The Urbio vessels will be made of post consumer recycled plastic. We’re hoping to offer an eco solution to urban gardening, while keeping the cost very affordable. The magnets will not lose strength over time and in fact are very efficient in keeping the Urbio vessels vertical so that the plants can grow. It’s such a cool feeling when the vessel sticks to a ferrous surface and you walk away… kinda magical. And yes, Urbio was designed for the balcony-less flats in mind 🙂 Please visit our kickstarter site to pledge now and help make Urbio a reality.

    My mouse/ touch pad screwed up on my brand new laptop last year. When I called customer support with my warranty, they talked me through repairing it in the BIOS (whatever the heck that is). And since they are replacing your motherboard, or repairing it, whatever, I would imagine there are some BIOS settings that can be checked on and reset because replacing the motherboard probably means some BIOS settings are now not lining up with the new motherboard.

    Once the snoring had escalated to “affect the rotation of the earth” levels, I gave up and since my laptop is kept right next to my bed, I pulled it over and started reading some of my favorite blogs. A friend noticed I was on-line and we proceeded to chat. At last, I started feeling sleepy and so I put the computer back and tapped Hubs gently on the shoulder.

    ubs and I know better than to try to decorate the house together. It’s not that we haven’t tried, you understand. It’s just that Hubs is somewhat, and I say this with great love and respect, “particular” about where the decorations go. And by “particular,” of course, I mean a raving, perfection-obsessed, control freak who makes me ponder the idea of ripping my own fingernails from their beds just to distract myself from the agony of his constant adjusting of the scenery. Over the past several Christmas seasons I have learned how to handle this little quirk;I let him do his thing and I do mine. My thing includes setting up the nativity scene.

    Over the weekend, Son finally realized a long-cherished dream of his: to own an Atari video game console. I’m not exactly sure why this was such a coveted item for him, nor am I sure he knows. He simply says, “It’s a piece of gaming history.” Nice. Something from my childhood is viewed by my son as “history”. An antique, if you will.

    When I tried doing the same, I had to move my entire right side. My hip wasn’t cooperating, so all the the muscles from the right side of my face, down my shoulder and to my right calf had to pick up the slack. I certainly wouldn’t call my movements as “graceful.” I think it was more in the vicinity of “self induced muscular spasm while being electrocuted at irregular intervals.” At the end of one session, I was suffering from a full body twitch similar to a toad on drugs.

    Personally, I went through a frame of time where I did not believe. However, when I came back, I decided to start doing some serious research. I would look into arguments against Christianity, and then, when I believed (based on what was said/found) that there possibly WASN’T a God… I’d take those arguments (which were wonderful), and find the arguments to THOSE arguments…

    On my way back to the office, stuck on the back of a speed limit sign, was a small sticker, no bigger than 4 square inches. On it was a sketch of Andre the Giant and scrawled in the corner was “Andre the Giant has a Posse”. What a blast from the past! Andre the Giant?! In 2009?! For some reason this sticker just made me giddy. It was a treasure on a boring walk down a busy street. It’s almost a better sighting than the fire next to the train tracks I saw awhile back. Almost. But then a funny thing happened. I started getting all nostalgic.

    How many more people are we going to hear about that are losing their jobs? Too many for my taste. You read the sad stories everyday, people selling their most prized possessions, cutting back on luxuries, downsizing their homes, cars, etc., etc. It’s not often you hear the stories of people making it work with the new time they have or finding a new love after a long career was put to rest. Here is such a story. This is the story of Anna. This is a single mom, one of the millions in America laid off. Her newest venture – art. And I love it! It’s funky and retro, and just plain fun! Her collages are my favorite. Please check out “It Takes Two” and imagine my girls.

    Until then, let me tell you – though I have no photographic proof until I steal the photos I took with my Mom’s camera – Pikeville, TN is pretty darn gorgeous!

    So I have a new plan. I can’t control the weekdays since I don’t have her but the weekends – oh boy, I’m going to wear her out on the weekends! On Sat we spent 4 hours walking around the zoo. Our friend had a stroller. Did I let Layla rest a bit in the stroller? Nope. She was walking. Now, I’m no tyrant and did occasionally carry her or put her up on my shoulders but not for long. The Altanta Zoo has 2 playgrounds. We let the kids run around on both. Now it amazes me that Layla is “too tired” to walk from the otters to the pandas but show her a playground and suddenly she’s Usain Bolt. (you know, that dude from the Olympics? The fast one. Right. Him) Ten minutes into the ride home and she was conked out. I dumped her on the living room couch, not risking a walk upstairs and had a peaceful hour and a half to read. It was amazing! On Sunday, the only active thing we did was go to the grocery store and she was still so worn out from Sat that she fell asleep watching cartoon at her Papa’s house. Thank goodness for the family pass b/c now whenever I have a good book to read, we’re going to the zoo first!

    On Facebook there is this application where you can pick your top 5 of basically any catagory you can think of. And if you didn’t think of one, don’t worry, some moron thought of it for you. I chose “5 Albums That Shaped Me” and as I did, very specific memories came into focus. And because most of my readers are family, I felt the need to share them.

    First off, I could give a f*ck less what my date says about my appearance. I think I’m hot, so what do I care? What matters to me is when a guy tells me I’m beautiful even if I’m in no make-up, jeans, a T shirt, and sneaks. Because that means he’s talking about something beneath the surface. If a guy can’t even see a HINT of that in you, from the beginning, then he’s not worth it. He’s just not the right guy for you. (And if he “sees” more than a hint of that, he may just be talking out of his a$$ to get some, but hell, you’re a chick, you know what signs to look for”.

Then, I tackled the boxes. One at a time. I couldn’t look at the entire house filled with boxes. It just made me want to cry, if I did. I had to force myself to focus on the one box in front of me.

    Last time I wrote a big thing about Starbucks, this time I’ve delving into the world of McCafe. The way I viewed McDonald’s while working at the agency and the global perception may be a bit different. Both good and bad, but mainly just different. The amount I enjoyed just doing work and being able to be a part of something on the account really transitioned over to the brand for me. It created a little more respect for the brand in my mind so to speak. Because I mean, I know what McDonald’s is, I know they aren’t really revered or respected for some of their characteristics. But in an advertising way, I think they do a marvelous job. They also show phenomenal social responsibility through multiple charities.

    I know I am being real-igious when I can tell my friend that Iâ??m so irked at my teen that 4 letter words are flashing through my brain.

    I know I am being real-igious when I can tell someone elseâ??s kid they need to knock it off and that Jesus loves them, but they still need to shape up because they are bugging me!

    Emotions in musical form? You’re fucking kidding, right? I’d like you to play ennui in G minor, if you please. How can centuries worth of music all be about emotions? No classical arrangement was ever about fucking, or beer, or fucking beer? If you want to hear a bunch of songs about emotions, listen to Pinkerton. What a gross generalization for something you claim to have such a nuanced appreciation for. Second, hundreds of unique melodies? Shostakovich probably wrote hundreds of unique melodies himself, so aren’t you underselling this part? Then again, so has Matthew Good. So that really doesn’t distinguish anything from anything. And finally, as you enjoy your empty glass full of fart, ‘written by true musical geniuses’? Have you ever considered the possibility that there is shitty classical music written by shitty composers, just as there are shitty pop songs today? Maybe, a hundred plus years on, the shit just got filtered out? And furthermore, there’s an awful lot of mediocre classical music floating around written by supposed geniuses.

    It’s raining again. All this cold wet weather is kind of making me crazy, but until the sun comes out to shine again, the best we can do is throw on the rain gear and take a walk in the wet, wet woods.

    Hey kids, the third and final installment of our Marriage Counseling videos is up (be sure to watch it all the way through). We have just two more performances of The Union – A Very Civil War at Donny’s Skybox, tonight is one of them. The show is at 10:30pm and we’d love to see you there!

    So that every 22 year old woman will learn to suck it the fuck up, get her shit together, and deal with being drunk. So that every boyfriend a woman ever has will be spared the indignity of half-carrying her drunk ass home from a club while she acts like a dizzy cunt from hell. So that every bff will be spared the same on girls’ night out.

    Look, as I’ve said before, getting drunk with your own girlfriend is just about the worst thing ever. Getting drunk with someone else’s girlfriend however, is totally awesome. And I don’t like what that says about our society.

    It’s funny how things work out sometimes. I was dreading teaching today–talking about water for a 2-hr class with preschoolers? It sounded miserable. A class about sharks or tidepools or coral reefs is fun. But a whole class about water? Oh brother, I didn’t know how I would pull it off. On top of that, I was supposed to discuss the water cycle (can preschoolers even say the words precipitation, evaporation and condensation?), and the density of fresh water versus salt water. DENSITY?!

    I’m also the new writer for Best Church of God, a hit satire show. I’m extremely proud to be part of this group. I first saw the show last year and the critics are right, it’s HILARIOUS. It’s a little creepy how accurate it portrays this parody of a church. I knew I had to be a part of it. Initially I’m going to be focusing on writing web content, but may expand out more from there. Here are a few of the articles I’ve written that have already gone up.

    Yeah, so I really wasn’t looking forward to teaching. And you know what? It turned out fine. Even better than fine. The 4 and 5 year olds were well behaved, adorable, and really smart. They got everything. Kids will surprise you. And they can crack you up too. I forgot how fun teaching can be.

    It takes about 9 seconds of interaction to find out if someone is an asshole. It is literally (okay, not literally) painted all over their face. If you can’t figure it out until after dating the guy for 2 months, you’re very stupid. Congratulations.
