Step Into Dwell Outdoor
Modern design extends beyond glass walls. From planters and prefab to shrubs and sheds, we export the lifestyle values that inform our in-house decisions—sustainability, simplicity and quality—and brush up our space out back. On the floor, take a walk through our custom-curated and landscaped Dwell Outdoor exhibition area, where we bring the outside in and showcase the latest in exterior design.

- From modern prefab sheds to luxury tent lodges, organic planters to living walls, Dwell Outdoor is one of the most anticipated exhibitions at this year's Dwell on Design.
- Eero Aarnio’s persistent quest for functional forms and manufacturing processes has been at the center of his iconic and prolific career.
- The path to a better world isn't through pavers but via plants, says artist and Woolly Pocket founder Miguel Nelson.
Woolly Pocket’s breathable fabric planters, made of recycled plastic bottles, whick water away to avoid root rot and are available in nine different sizes and shapes (ranging from $29 to $247) and three colors that include both freestanding and modular living-wall models. If you’re brave enough, you can even carry your plant and its planter around as a tote with the Woolly Vagabond “living breathing handbag.”
Modern housewares manufacturer Alessi teamed up with Finnish designer Eero Aarnio to create the Diva, a curvaceous green, black, or white watering can that looks as good as it is handy.
- It’s quite a feat to transform the interior of a convention hall—vast and fluorescently lit—into a feel-good lounge-y space that truly brings the outside in.
If you aren't familiar with Woolly Pocket's vertical planters, check their site for a nifty way to grow greens along the walls. These soft Islands are made from the same 100%-industrially-felted-plastic-bottles, offering breathable containers with a moisture barrier that are just a bit different than your basic pot. The peacock blue shade is new and would look loverly with a succulent or bloom inside.
- A stint in a sauna rumored to have myriad benefits from the social and heath standpoints and if you've considered building one of your own, here are five examples from the Dwell archive.
