Green Fingers / Garden Furniture

Green Fingers
Green Fingers

This series of garden furniture “Green fingers” creates an opportunity for elderly people to do gardening and at the same time be in contact with nature.
It is very healthy to interact with nature since it evolutionary speaking is the environment that we are made to live in. Furthermore fresh air has a great impact on both health and spirit.
Another important fact is self-determination. The project gives elderly the choice to become independent.

The project is based on research done from interviewing occupational therapists, elderly people, gardeners and furniture specialists
