Amazing DIY Fish Tank Combined with Gardening Eco-System


Artist Mathieu Lehanneur has created a DIY fish and gardening eco-system that can sit right in the middle of your living room. The Paris-based artist’s studio produces industrial design and interior architecture that blends interactions between people and living systems within the environment. Local River is an in-home unit that houses freshwater fish and a mini vegetable patch. The two thrive off of each other to create a habitable and balanced space that mimics nature.

According to Lehanneur, “Local River aims to replace the decorative ‘TV aquarium’ by an equally decorative but also functional ‘refrigerator-aquarium’. In this scenario, fish and greens cohabit for a short time in a home storage unit before being eaten by their keepers, the end-players in an exchange cycle within a controlled ecosystem.” The final results are a variety of food sources that are completely fresh and that have not been affected by mass consumer production.
