Green walls are not only spectacularly beautiful, but they also help enliven a space, humidify the air, and process toxins. We loved this simple and modular living wall by Greenworks, a design duo from Stockholm. The design we saw at this year’s ICFF consists of a lovely felted plant wall with a self-automated watering system and a sturdy base. Inserting more plants into a room through planting tiles, potted plants, or a living wall provides a healthier indoor air quality, as well as a more beautiful space.
Greenworks’ Mobile Plantwall includes a self-automated watering and nutrition system for the growing plants, which makes it incredibly easy to maintain and take care of. The stand has front and back panels that can be unlocked and separated for maintenance or cleaning. These living walls are meant to provide a superior alternative to traditional potted plants in offices and homes. Plantwalls can be placed alone or grouped together to form walls or screens.
The Greenworks Mobile Plantwall concept was designed by Lisa Wacklin, a design strategist and gardener, and Per Berglund, a design manager. This is their first design together, and we would love to see more of their great ideas developed into real products.
