Our Clients were fitting out new hi-tech offices. They wanted to provide some privacy in various work spaces while still have the feeling of a modern open office.
-they looked at several options including screens & blinds, all of which were at odds with an open feel.
-they looked at the high on-going cost of live plants [water-proof planters/purchase or on-going hire costs], finally they asked us for suggestions
-firstly, saving big money by just building simple timber planters along their low partitions, we were able to custom make inserts + greenery & install for the price of a few months hire of similar live plants
-this also avoids having 'plant hire people' wandering around the office maintaining struggling plants
-artificial plants stay green & healthy looking, keep shape, don't drop leaves, don't attract insects & require little cost in upkeep [quick dust, same any furniture]
-the end result, a uniform green screen cohesively running through offices, providing just enough privacy without losing an open plan appeal, all at a low initial, tax-deductable outlay...
