At work we often use screensavers or postcards of beach scenes for inspiration. Imagine going a step further. Imagine creating a workplace that transports you to the beach every time you enter the office. Office fit-out designers all over Europe are doing it – now is your chance. All it takes is some strategic use of Mummie Plants’ most popular line – grasses.
You’ve guessed it, were not talking regular grass that cows dine on or Premier League footballers dive on. Mummie Plants work with the more dramatic Gynerium Grass. Similar to the Marram grass found in sand dunes, our grasses are busy being used to bring office environments back in touch with nature. Their rich texture and vibrant colour makes them the ideal plants for infusing workplaces with calmness and creativity.
Increasingly the trend is for large corporations to make office environments less structured. Removing walls allows for greater creativity, more sense of community and shared problem-solving amongst employees. Office fit-out designers are creating flexible spaces that adapt constantly to changing client needs. Movable screening and planting are replacing walls as the partition of choice.
Mummie Grass is the ideal medium for use in office screening. Its pliability offers endless design possibilities. Preserved grass has all the same characteristics of live grass – it works with gravity allowing us to create different forms. Vertical skyscrapers, spiky afros, lively cascades. With straight-cut, natural or curled tips. A variety of lifelike effects that is simply not possible with rigid artificial grass.
Each blade of our grass is individually hand-planted into a holding block. Special effects are achieved by changing the angle and placement of the blades: Planting in small bunches and cutting back the grass tips give a more formal feel; bunching the grasses centrally and leaving the tips natural creates a more free-style feature. Whatever your preferred form of design or style all grasses give you the added benefit of operating as a natural screen to absorb office noise and create pockets of privacy.
Mummie Plants grasses come complete with elegant planter boxes that are lightweight and easy to move. Grass-partitioned office layouts can be changed effortlessly. The result: Managers are enjoying the freedom to refresh their office layouts, finding it re-energises staff and boosts productivity. Ready for a change of indoor scenery?
