Originally developed for urban gardening in cities and homes lacking adequate space for such projects, Urbio cleverly puts a range of vessels into a vertical modular design for purposing and re-purposing wall spaces in your home or office. Urbio Kits begin with a grid of wall-mounted polypropylene panels. Add to your base wall 'grid' a number of interchangeable, magnetized vessels for holding plantings, paperclips, paraphernalia and more. Urbio keeps them organized in cool modern style.
The Big Happy Family is 6 members strong, each with their own talents. This kit contains 6 wall plates which can be arranged in any manner you choose with included hardware.

Good product...could be great with slight improvement
By: Tracy, Designer (Orange, CA)
Love the modularity and lightweight nature of the product. It's contemporary, affordable, clean, very easy to install and configure. The only thing I'd suggest to make it great: make containers more suitable for office items rather than for plant material. This is a very useful office tool - and I haven't seen anything like it before, especially at this price point - but it is awkward with pens & pencils, folders, etc. Would also like to see a horizontal shelf and/or horizontal inbox-type piece. It has really strong magnets, another plus. Please keep making and improving on this product! It really fills a niche.

I bought the Big Happy Family and use it for succulent. Easy to install and looks great on the wall! Couldn't be happier with the purchase.

I really enjoy this product. It is made from high quality material, not cheap plastic. Once on the wall, it is really fun to play with shapes and colors. Also, very convenient to change or water plants if you are using it as a wall planter. The only - tiny - low point is that you need to be extra precise when drilling to put the plaques on the wall. Otherwise, fantastic!!
Urbio was born out of a collaboration between award-winning design pair Beau Oyler and Jared Aller and their Enlisted Design team in Oakland, California. What began as a solution for urban areas and smaller homes lacking adequate gardening space developed in to "Urbio" - a vertical wall system as versatile in its components as it is in its applications.
Urbio is a recyclable product constructed in a light weight, durable polypropylene. Outfitted with super strong neodymium magnets, the system begins as a grid of wall mounted panels. Component pieces, offered in a variety of sizes, build upon the grid to create a diverse and dependable solution for urban gardening and small space organization.
Urbio’s vertical orientation offers a space saving solution that takes advantage of the surface area of interior wall spaces while adding an element of cool modern decor. The magnetic vessels allow for easy removal, rearrangement, and customization. So create, rearrange and customize. Make it "your" unique Urbio solution.View other products from Urbio
