Indoor Eden, aka the Viriditas Greenhouse, is based on the book The Secret Life of Plants, which describes how plants respond to factors such as attention and music. When conditions are optimal, plants produce more and better fruit. It is also shown that humans experience less stress when connected with nature. From this came the idea for the ’Viriditas Greenhouse’, a sacred place where plants are worshiped and man can unwind and reflect. The greenhouse is a design by Anouk van der Poll, lushly enriched by Betül Canbaz who developed an interior concept where nature is brought inside through design and objects. In both the greenhouse and the adjacent showroom, all senses are addressed. It’s the only Garden of Eden where you can stay as long as you like.
