With the popularity of @boyswithplants and #plantlife shelfies, it seems like plants are everywhere these days 鈥 digitally, at least. But when it comes to IRL, honest-to-goodness greenery, there鈥檚 one spot that鈥檚 still sorely lacking: our offices. If you鈥檙e spending time in a cubicle farm, you鈥檝e probably noticed yourself longing for sunlight and green (especially in the dark winter months). But not everyone can have a corner office looking out on a plant-filled veranda, which is why designer Johan Kauppi created the Limbus GreenFrame.

The GreenFrame is a freestanding, solid ash frame fitted with a lighting bar to encourage plant growth and create an effect similar to having a window nearby. I often long for the forest and have a beautiful Norfolk pine next to my desk, always making me happy,鈥 Kauppi noted. That cheering effect led him to want to offer a similarly plant-filled workday experience to others. The result, he says, is 鈥渁 mixture of a room divider, green furniture, and light fixture.鈥

While we can certainly imagine using this piece at home (especially in tiny apartments not blessed with floor-to-ceiling windows), there鈥檚 no denying that it鈥檚 particularly suited to office spaces. The GreenFrame interacts nicely with another of Kauppi鈥檚 designs, a floor screen called Limbus Subtle, which was created to absorb sound as well as physically divide a space.

The white light embedded in the frame keeps the look minimal. And while the light source is keeping your plants happy, your plants could be doing the same for you: Studies have shown that some houseplants help keep your workspace healthy, and can even make you more productive. (Definitely a perk when you鈥檙e in the middle of an endless workweek.)

The GreenFrame just debuted at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair and is currently only available upon request from Glimakra of Sweden. But keep your eyes peeled: It could be coming to a (very hip) workplace near you.
