Vertical gardens and green walls are the universal design thread through some of the nation’s hippest restaurants. From Los Angeles to New York City, you’ll see dining rooms adorned with hanging baskets of live ferns, verdant succulents, and even floating gardens. Ask any interior designer, and they’ll tell you that plants add powerful accents and create a palpable change in the way a restaurant looks and feels.
The hospitality industry is a competitive one. In order to thrive, restaurants must provide not only superior cuisine and service, but an atmosphere that engages the senses. For this reason, many establishments are turning to biophilic design – incorporating elements of nature inside. Interior spaces that reference the outdoors in direct and subtle ways (think wall planters and living sculptures) have been shown to improve the physical and mental well-being of the occupants.
Blurring the Boundaries Between Inside and Out
The skilled use of vegetation – whether tabletop vases, trees, or living walls, brings a spectacular aesthetic along with many functional benefits. Artfully designed green walls bring life into neutral environments and can be utilized to define cozy dining spaces in large, open-plan restaurants.
Hanging baskets festooned in foliage draw the eye upward while creating a feeling of lushness and volume that adds dimension. Plant design is also employed to give each section of a restaurant – bar, terrace, dining area – a specific ambiance, be it romantic, minimalist, or modern farmhouse. Strategically placed planters can help provide privacy from other dining guests. Restaurants are also using indoor ceramic planters from Pandemic Design Studio to inject color and textural interest without taking up valuable floor space.
Handcrafted from premium stoneware, each modular planter is a work of art in its own right. Hang them individually or in clusters to fashion an eye-catching biophilic focal point. There are various size and color options, letting designers mix and match for a truly custom effect. Our ceramic wall planters can be used to frame architectural features, demarcate dining areas, or simply add visual interest.
Welcome patrons to an inviting environment with a stunning piece of living sculpture that literally breathes new life into dining spaces. Whether decked out with orchids, spider plants, or staghorn ferns, our planters elevate the ambiance and provide a tangible connection to nature.
