Biophilic Skin / Biophilic application

Biophilic Skin

In cities, plants should ’ ve been a key role to make harmony between human and nature. However, the spaces for plants always be occupied because of the lack of land, which causes a series of environmental problems and makes high population density city become uninhabitable. Thus, we use moss as the medium, combined with environmental-friendly TPE material to make a three-dimensional structure, which can absorb moisture, purify the air and reduce the indoor temperature. We hope to increase vegetation area and environmental greening, creating a three-win environment for plant, city and human.
