Interior planting can help people to feel more relaxed and focused, which leads to an increase in creativity, idea generation and problem solving capabilities and overall productivity.
During a study based in Norway, when reviewing 12 of the common symptoms most often related to poor indoor air quality and ‘sick building syndrome,’ there was a 23% lower complaint rate during the period when the participants had plants in their offices.
Plants oxygenate the air and a variety of well placed plants or an entire green wall will have a marked effect on the internal environment.
Living in urban environments, we are surrounded by concrete, traffic, noise and pollution. This is not healthy. It has a profound impact on our physical and mental wellness. Greenery softens this hard environment, acting as a tonic to ease stress and fatigue.
Plants possess a natural ability to draw their system towards a light source, which can act as an indoor awning. The need for alternative means of shading can be eliminated while maintaining the valuable natural view. This multi-purpose method of shading becomes much more cost-effective than alternative engineered products.
