Nothing spells architectural delight and clean air like the Plantini miniature growing kit by the Glasgow-based architectural model and model kit company known as Finch & Fouracre. Since their start in 2008, the Stuttgart-trained design duo says that "every job is given special attention, and no model is treated as an 'off-the-production-line' job".

Standing just 9.5 cm high, Finch & Fouracre call it an "opulent tabletop plant house" which "emulates the ornate steelwork of Victorian hothouses" using a removable canopy and etched glass panes that bring water and light into the mix. To create the tiny model kits for thriving indoor plant life, the project was done in collaboration with Another Studio for Design and works synonymously in tandem with Postcarden, where the tiny Plantini pots and structures are sold as a complete package.
