I TRIED TO FOLLOW THE WHOLE BUILDING UP PROCESS OF THE MICRO GARDEN AS INITIALLY I THOUGHT I WOULD DO A PRODUCT THAT BUILD S UP A REAL GARDEN SPACE AND IN THE DIRECT SENCE I WAS COMPREHENDING MY PROJECT TO BE GIVING A NATURE INDOOR FEEL BY PRACTICALLY GROWING A SMALL INDOOR GARDEN INSIDE. THE PRODUCT DESIGN WOULD HAVE BEEN HOW I GET TP MAKE THE GARDEN INDOORS.

Mood board by The Farm Kitchen’s designers, Mette.

As a testament to the prevailing interest in countertop gardening and indoor farming, a conceptual kitchen environment showcasing micro-agriculture will be a key feature at this year’s 100% Design 2013 during the London Design Festival.

The Farm Kitchen, the hub of the show’s Kitchen & Bathroom section, will explore of the integration of micro-agriculture within the kitchen’s social experience. The aim, according to the show’s producers, is “to balance functional growing with conceptual design that retains individual identity.”

Other brands now offer compact countertop kits with automatic irrigation and integrated lighting, sleek vertical garden systems for creating living walls right in the kitchen, and other high tech technologies that enable regular folks to produce their own food on a small to medium scale.

UK-based design firm, Mette, is creating this micro-agriculture food environment, which will include luxury brand Gaggenau’s stylish built-in appliances to showcase how the latest developments in kitchen design can be combined with urban farming.

As more people migrate to cities, and urban environments become increasingly dense, designers will be challenged to create innovative methods for indoor growing and composting with multi-functional products for optimizing these limited spaces.

The Farm Kitchen will be a conceptual demonstration of an ideal environment for cultivating one’s own farm produce, offering ideas and inspiration for growing food right in tight city kitchens whose small footprints would make it otherwise impossible to accomplish

Micro-agriculture—growing one’s own organic produce in and around the home often in small countertop containers using traditional and hydroponic methods—offers an opportunity for self-sustainability and control over what we eat.

Many brands are jumping on the popular bandwagon, including Bulbo, a design-led brand whose Cynara and Quadra lighting systems (above and below) with LED technology will be lighting up home grown produce in The Farm Kitchen.

And as space is often at a premium, especially in cities, these technologies make it equally easy to plant indoors as outdoors.
