Bacsac was born with the encounter 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 creating a roof garden in town: difficulties of transportation, excessive weight, but also 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 something mobile which is usually fixed because of its weight and its rigidity? How can we create a planted area at the lowest cost?'
The outcome is the ingenious Bacsacs.
