Plants break through the static furniture and literally and figuratively give life to a room. This creates a nice feeling for the people in that room. Because what is more pleasant than experiencing calmness and health upon entering a room!
When creating a design, interior designers are increasingly taking the addition of plants directly into account. When creating an inspiring working or living environment, the atmosphere and experience you feel are increasingly important.

Plants are integrated into designers' designs

Because a visually attractive environment leads to healthier and happier employees. A green workplace improves the perception of it. As a result, less stress is experienced, there is less absenteeism and employees experience their workplace a lot more positively. Customers will also get a better impression by adding plants.

Green brings positivity, because in addition to the good atmosphere and homely feeling that plants bring, they also have an air purifying effect. Polluted air is absorbed through the leaves and these harmful substances are removed through the roots of the plant. The CO2 (carbon dioxide) is converted into oxygen and the humidity increases. The effect of this is that harmful odors disappear and any headaches decrease. Research has shown that this increases productivity.

The eye-catcher of the La Place restaurant on Kalverstraat in Amsterdam is the Roof Garden Café on the second floor. It is large and bright with a glass roof. With many green plants, this is an oasis of peace high above the hustle and bustle of the city center. A unique place, in the middle of the city and yet far away from all the hustle and bustle.
The designer of the above projects is Philip van Traa. His goal is to green cities. He does this by integrating the LEAF concept into his designs. Plants are grown in a specially designed tray that can be placed in designer furniture. A simple way to quickly green spaces. If a plant fails, it can be replaced very easily and affordably with a new tray. The plant and tray are returned to the grower for recycling. New plants are grown there for subsequent projects. Locally grown, sustainable and a low footprint.
