Think Big! What does your space say about you?

Green wall – aesthetic & healthy!

November 19, 2009

Green walls are becoming increasingly popular in interior spaces.  Not only will you reap the benefits of cleaner air, you will enjoy a living, breathing piece of art.  Going “green” inside boosts oxygen levels and reduces the occurrence of headaches and dry skin.  Greenworks, a design team from Stockholm designed the mobile Plantwall concept featured below.  This particular model was designed with a self-automated watering and nutrition system, which reduces maintenance significantly.  Another great feature of this green wall is its mobility.  The Plantwall can be placed alone or grouped together to create walls and screens.  What a great alternative to potted plants!  It is so refreshing to find a product that is functional and beautiful.  Additionally, the Plantwall could have another dimension of functionality in regards to urban agriculture.  Why not plant herbs and local produce in the felted wall to create a fully edible indoor garden?  Urban agriculture is a growing trend that goes hand in hand with the sustainability movement.  The Plantwall provides an ingenious solution for those urban dwellers without a yard.

It is saddening to learn that the Plantwall is purely conceptual, however, I am confident that this great idea will be developed into a real product soon.  In the meantime, there are some local resources that are familiar with green roofs and walls.  Mott Landscaping, in particular, is one company that stands out.  Steve Mott has installed and educated others about this innovative design solution. 

 

However you choose to incorporate plants into your interior, make sure you do it!  The health benefits and aesthetic properties are sure make a significant impact on the end user of the space.
