Our moodboards are to inspire; ignite a spark of creativity.
This single product had us re-imagining our office space, which is a sure sign that the light is going to appeal to others. Our enthusiasm for the light fitting with its indoor garden, catapulted seeds of creativity everywhere. Our meanderings and imaginings really grew and with an abundance of rich fruitful ideas, we’ve harvested a few of the best to share with you.
How great this could be in a kitchen with culinary plants in abundance hanging over a central kitchen island. Pick a spring of thyme and add to your G&T as you chat to guests. Like having your own Jamie Oliver moment; pucker!
We expanded this idea realising that plenty of drinks can have herbal garnishes, mojitos need mint. After going off topic we decided we’d love a trip to a bar like this.
Oh! And then if you had a restaurant, you could herb this light right up. Imagine that waft of basil scenting the air in an Italian restaurant.
Or go all out jungle with trailing plants creating hanging gardens and tropical sounds like crickets, bird calls. That would be lovely and relaxing whilst waiting in the dentists better than sitting silence which is occasionally punctuated with…. a drill.
Planting softens the look outdoors, where hard landscaping is used. Which means it can do the same indoors, surely?
This prompted talk of social spaces within hospitality and leisure sectors. Exploring non-traditional pathways for contract markets is fun. And imminently commercially viable. Who wouldn’t want well-lit inviting spaces?!
The burgeoning ideas we are having today, do dovetail neatly with expectation of brands whose goals are shifting. They need to echo the socio-cultural inclusivity vibe. The culture and in turn decor for work and leisure spaces has shifted on its axis. It’s predicted that inclusivity will see venues investing more than ever in the social spaces. Hotels in particular need to ensure that all guests feel safe and well. Rather than customers being a captive market, brands realise that to resonate with clients they need to be wrapping around the whole person. The narrative for businesses seeking to resonate with todays’ consumers, is include everyone, be gender neutral, and wellbeing at the fore is metal health.
Can adding a light and plants help promote wellbeing? It would be a bold statement indeed to suggest this light can bring everything to everyone, but we think it’s perfectly possibly it can enhance most spaces.
We know green space is at a premium in city hotels. That trends are leaning towards creating more inclusive spaces where everyone is welcomed. The feeling of being outdoors promotes a freer feeling; conducive to relaxing! Bringing the outdoors in whilst taking indoors out, brings an open boundary, free-flowing space too.
