A PLANT-COVERED PARADISE

Plant-covered buildings are taking over and we’re not complaining! Both beautifully designed and eco-friendly, Jean Nouvel has released plans for a 90-metre-tall hotel in Sao Paulo’s historical district that will have plants and trees growing from each terrace, mimicking the environment around it. Scheduled to open in 2019, the hotel will contain both guest rooms and apartments, and even luxuries such as three swimming pools and a spa.

WHEREVER, WHENEVER

Portable chargers are great for peace of mind whilst on the go – unless you forget to charge them. XDModo have fixed this by creating a device that uses solar energy, so you can charge wherever and you’re not draining any of the earth’s resources either. The ‘Window Solar Charger’ sticks to glass so it can soak up the maximum amount of energy possible, or it also has a handy kickstand. Pretty essential for festivals and holidays!
