Moonstera is a concept based on biophilic design. Design that engages all the senses by introducing natural materials, shapes, and nature into the interior. Where does the name come from? Monstera is a plant found in tropical forest, Earth’s lungs. We replaced ‘mon’ with moon to symbolize natural light and the phases of the moon, which strongly affect health and well-being.
Moonstera's products change office and public spaces into more friendly and healthy places. Inspiring and protecting against destroyers of vital forces: polluted air, noise, and loss of contact with nature.
The air indoors can, and often is, contaminated much more than outdoors. NASA's research shows that the best way to counteract that is to use properties of potted plants. They are capable of purifying air from harmful, volatile substances. We will help you choose the right plants, taking into account the light, the interior’s layout, and needs of the employees.
Social gardening is a young field of knowledge that inspires us to follow the guidelines of horticultural therapy. moonstera’s living furniture need human care, and in return they offer calming and aesthetic sensations that enrich spiritually.
At a Wageningen University's & Research Centre in Holland, where a number of studies on healthy environment are being conducted, it has been found that the presence of greenery in offices can even reduce energy costs by up to 20%. Plants regulate the temperature in the interiors, so you do not need to use as much air conditioning or heating. This is another powerful argument for the biophilic design!
How and which industrial waste materials can be reprocessed? This and many other issues that can make the design more environmentally friendly we think of every day. We will soon be introducing hemp straw and wood bark into our collections – waste that can be re-used successfully.
Moonstera's acoustic boxes and walls bring quietness into to the noisy spaces in the form of plants which are an integral part of the collection. Multiple studies conducted over the years show that greenery influences the sound propagation by absorbing and dissipating acoustic energy. We will create flowering oasis of silence for you!
With the Moonstera, you can arrange space creatively. Acoustic boxes, telephone booths, walls, benches - all immersed in greenery. Work and public spaces transformed into a vibrant beauty, providing real benefits: fresh air, silence and contact with nature.
