What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Why?

Concerned by the existence of pesticides in fruits and vegetables in traditional agriculture, as well as the cost of organic products, Charles Jenny Studio offers a technical innovation that associates countryside benefits to urban areas. The project called “les jardins suspendus/The hung gardens" has for sole purpose to provide an opportunity for citizens to grow their food in the confinement of their home, regardless of owning a garden or a balcony.

Concept

The infrastructure that allows for a vegetable garden and made of genuine wood is mobile and modular. Therefore, adapts itself to everyone’s needs, from a single person to a family. By being stackable, the garden boxes can be used as vegetable screen who are used at an architectural scale. This concept allows for an increase in productivity while saving ground surface. All the features mentioned, make of “The hanging gardens” an exclusive functional object with a refined design.

Thanks to the node "Euclid" created and patented during development, it has the potential to be repeated in all three dimensions to infinity. It's clean and simple design makes it practical and easy to install.

Where ?

These practical and functional units work anywhere: in your living room, on your balcony or in the city. The assembly is easy and accessible for everyone.

The structure’s construction meets the criteria of a Swiss local product, both in the choice of materials and in the partnering businesses.

Suspended gardens can be used in a variety of contexts, including public places that are not places of consumption. Garden structures can serve as important elements in the construction of projects for social programs. Living in a city wouldn't have to mean that you can't have a garden anymore. Even if you don't have access to a balcony, you just have to be near a natural light in any room of your home.

Goals

I grew up in the country as a child, I went to get fresh food products in the vegetable garden, I ate them for a good part of the year. When I arrived in Lausanne to study architecture, I didn’t have a balcony. I missed the taste of fresh radishes and when my flatmates wanted parsley for salad it cost a small fortune for three leaves, and forget about organic herbs for which one had to double the price. As students, it adds up pretty quickly of course, especially when we like to enjoy good food. As one thing leads to another, and with the help of my friends, I developed this project. The urban gardens came along slowly, bit by bit, with the hope that everyone can enjoy a green space at the window or balcony and be able to grow healthy food too.

Risks and challenges

If the Kickstarter works, we will be able to produce the hanging gardens. The structure’s construction meets the criteria of a local product (Swiss-made), both in the choice of materials and in that of the local partnering companies. The wood comes too, from forests in Switzerland.

For sure, we will let you know right away if something comes up. Our products are ready for production. All we need is your support. To be on time, we can delivery our furniture to be absolutely perfect for you in maximum October 2018. Most probably before but we don't want to give promises undelivered.
