Read full project description Close project description

Designer and artist Patrick Kruithof strives to create "sustainable experiences" with his products. He created the Hollyhock tile, a paving stone that can be easily fitted into the pavement which contains 36 seeds. Holes in the tile allow Hollyhock flowers to grow, specially chosen for the city environment because of their sturdiness.  His work is currently exhibited at the Dream Out Loud exhibition in Amsterdam's Stedelijk museum.
