Thanks to its soft texture and modular skeleton, it can be easily assembled to create large-scale green walls and floors, whether flat or curved. It also incorporates technology for automatically regulating water retention. This is a brilliant green solution that combines the ecological precepts of recycling and reuse to create something new and truly beautiful.

This is a brilliant green solution from the inside out.
