WHY PLANT DESIGN?
Plant Design is the art and science of improving interiors by means of a living design object (that is, a plant!). The aim of Plant Design is to create a healthier and more beautiful living environment with plants as the baseline.
Bringing nature into your home has a great effect on your mental, emotional and physical health. The presence of plants lowers blood pressure, increases productivity, creates a more positive mood and improves performance at school and work. In addition, plants have air-purifying properties. And for plants, size matters. The bigger the plant, the greater the positive effect.
