French designer Benjamin Pawlica has fused design and horticulture to create a plantable concrete wall tile for interior and exterior green walls. The triangular Deltaflore modular system can be put together in any number of combinations depending on the desired shape and size of your wall.

If cared for properly, the plants will thrive and flow from Deltaflore’s openings, cultivating interesting plays of light and shadow to provide, in the designer’s words, “a poetic atmosphere.” The unique modular system creates an atmosphere that resembles European houses covered with beautiful ivy or Virginia creepers. For those living in warmer climes, it is possible to create a more tropical environment with various ferns, carnivorous plants, and other exotic plants and vines.

Pawlica’s tiles were designed for LCDA, a company that specializes in contemporary furniture and interior design using composite materials. Made with durable concrete and offered in a variety of different colors, the range of possibilities for your very own green wall is limited only by your imagination.
