About the project:

The aim of the project was to introduce product innovation to the market in the form of modules with an integrated vertical garden system, the design of which was developed at the service stage. The implementation of the product was possible thanks to the purchase of fixed assets for the needs of the company's new plant where the assembly works of vertical gardens will be carried out on the basis of previously produced modules thanks to the purchased and optimised moulds. The long-term objectives of this implementation will be: - increase in the competitiveness of the company's products by responding to the identified consumer needs in the field of green technologies (implementation of developed modules), as well as potentially lower offer prices (thanks to the production of modules based on our own moulds), - increase in revenues from the sale of the company's products in the form of vertical gardens and ready-made modules, thanks to the creation of a new plant for simultaneous assembly/ preparation of a greater number of products.

About the project:

The main goal of the project is to create a unique line of furniture designed for commercial interiors, including offices with a built-in vertical garden and air filtration system. 
The subject of the project is the implementation of industrial works, experimental research and development aimed at creating an innovative product - a furniture system with a built-in vertical garden system with IT control, which improves the quality of the environment, particularly the air in closed rooms. The introduction of vegetation into the interior and the use of filtering elements will help to reduce air pollution, moisturise it and positively affect the human psyche. The result of the project will be a new product - a globally unique line of furniture for commercial interiors with a built-in system of vertical gardens. It is a response to the steadily decreasing size of areas covered with vegetation, mainly in growing cities. The products are designed to combine the functional features of typical furniture and ergonomic use with the beneficial effects of plants on air quality.
