{ Project To Love | The Glass Garden }

" The Glass Garden is a small shoppe located in Buckhead, Atlanta that hand makes unique glass terrariums.
 The atmosphere of our company is modern and simple, using shapes and lines derived for our 
in store succulents and air plants. Frank Lloyd Wright has been a huge influence on us as well with
 his pioneering of glass soldering and geometric design. "  Amanda Guarini 
                                               " The idea behind these lightweight rhombic dodecahedrons was to create 
something for our customer that is interesting and unique like our terrariums, 
that would also keep their new items safe from the store to the car and from the car to home.
 I wanted to use a frosted material to reiterate the 'glass' garden while not being too literal, 
as well as a package with a purpose/afterlife that could contain the plants for as long as necessary 
(light and air is made accessible for the plants through a folded door)
 before they make it to their permanent terrarium home. "
"All plant packages include the type of plant, the variety name, a reference image on the top, 
short description of the plant on the back and comes with a five page booklet on the back explaining in detail 
more plant information for your terrariums. For the terrarium packaging, I wanted something simple and elegant that 
would set the stage to enhance the beauty of the handmade nature of the terrariums themselves.
 I also wanted the customer's experience to be kept in mind, similar to Apple's packaging, 
so the lid intersects the terrarium's photo right where the pentagonal door hinge opens, 
while also revealing only the top half of the vessel once the lid is removed.
Included in the box is a keepsake information card with the name of the specific terrarium, 
how it was handmade as well as its dimensions. 
The card also doubles as a stabilizer so the terrarium will not move and topple while in transit."

                       
              The great advantage of terrariums that come to show is that they are beautiful and amazing, and we love 
                to have them at home. Its great disadvantage, which are not for sale ...practically, not even exist on the market.
 The Glass Garden is a project of a group of students to create a hypothetical brand terrarium, 
whose aesthetic is based on geometric shapes, patterns and simple lines. The project owner is Amanda Guarini .
 This school project was so well done that, plus entry to the premises and terrariums, 
Guarini shows everything about the brand in terms of design, from the logo and corporate identity to packaging envelopes, 
stationery and other items daily use in a business. Then there are the books that potential customers could buy at the 
store and further objects, for the concept to diversify a bit, while still having plants and terrariums basis. 
To say that as part of the project, there is even a hypothetical application for iPad. 


Definitely Amanda students did a super good job. It's a shame we can not go to the store, 
choose a few terrariums and bring them home,or give them away for a special occasion.
