Urbio is a fascinating vertical garden system that’s minimalist, expandable, and affordable. It was designed by Volare Studio and Enlisted Design, who posted the system on Kickstarter to raise funds to bring the product to market. Urbio includes wall plates, wall mount pucks, and various pot sizes. It’s the perfect kind of system to liven up a wall while growing herbs, succulents, and other small plants.
It’s Spring and high time to get outside. One way to do that is with an outdoor fire feature to warm friends and family as the sun goes down. Phoenix-based metal artist Brandon Williams designed Modfire, a sleek, 14-gauge steel fireplace, after seeing a need in the market for a cool, modern outdoor options. His modern 48″ x 22″ feature is available in natural, red, blue, and orange with pricing from $950. In addition, Modfire can be outfitted to run on natural gas or propane, if desired.
Illinois-based Sloan Valve Company won all sorts of awards for AQUS Water Reuse System (model HMA6000). That award-winning system has been updated, and the new HMA7000 model is now available. The upgraded small-scale water reuse system has a redesigned look and feel, installs in less than one hour, and is compatible with most dual-flush and one-piece toilets on the market.
