|BACSAC® was created between designer Godefroy de Virieu and landscapers Virgile
Desurmont and Louis de Fleurieu. Together, they looked for an alternative solution to get
round the constraints of the creation of a roof garden in town: difficulties of transportation,
excessive weight, but also a lack of choice of containers, most of which are often very
expensive. How can we reverse the tendency to pay more for the container than the
contents? How can we make mobile an installation which is often fixed because
of its weight and its rigidity? How can we create a planted area at the lowest cost?
The idea of planting in bags came from this desire to change habits and valorize
what it should be, the plant!
Manufacturing bags in a permeable geotextile to prevent asphyxiation of the soil...
|The flexible material easily allows to mutiply the modules, to imagine the creation of real
seasonal collection of bags, varying not only with the forms but also with the colors.
It’s a new generation of flexible plant containers. Its double-walled geotextile fabric,
100% recyclable, maintains the necessary balance between air, soil and water.
Frost and sun resistant as well as suitable for all environments.
|It’s Nature in a bag.
