Balkonzept Balcony Table And Flower Box Makes Even The Smallest Of Outdoor Spaces Cool (PHOTOS)

City-dwellers who are lucky enough to have any outdoor space at all, know that most balconies and patios are way too small for multiple functions. But that's no longer the case thanks to the balkonzept, a balcony table and flower box that provides a surface for dining or working with an integrated planter. The best part? The legless design takes up virtually no space at all.

Created by Berlin-based designer Michael Hilgers for Rephorm and made from weather-resistant recyclable polyethylene in fun colors, the balkonzept hangs safely from any style railing without any hardware. And a built-in irrigation system will make sure your flowers look great. (Alternatively, we love the idea of filling this with ice to keep our favorite summertime beverages cold.)



Don't need the table? Rephorm also designs standalone planters.
