Objects Of Design #80: Zinc Window Box


Everyone's got a window

These shiny zinc window boxes make a change from all that galvanized steel and lead that’s always around.  Stick one of these on the window and fill it with herbs – the smell will be lovely – or add a mix of flowers for a bit more colour. Whatever you choose it can be your entire garden. Although if you do live in a flat, might be worth investing in the adjustable balcony bracket. You don’t want to fall out with the neighbours. Or kill them.
