A product designed to enhance indoor air quality does the work of 6,000 plants, its creators say.
The Naava Green Wall is equipped with 60 biofilters that purify air in a work environment in a less mechanical way.
“People spend most of their days indoors, which means that the indoors should feel as comfortable as the outdoors,” says Eeva Niemelä VP of interior design at Naava.
“Naava creates fresh, natural air and healthy green nature indoors, which is reflected in the alertness level and health of employees and thereby also the bottom line.
“According to a recent Harvard study, better air quality is the number one request on employees’ wish list at their workplace. Therefore, it is worth investing in good air quality.”
Naava’s Green Walls can be monitored via an app, which shows the quantity of indoor air Naava has “made natural” in any given space.
“Many people think that a couple of indoor plants in a room are sufficient in terms of air purifying,” added Niemelä.
“However, the purifying effect of one plant is quite small. With the Naava biofilter, we have multiplied this small effect many times over.
“It would require approximately 6,000 ordinary plants to reach the purifying effect of the 60 biofilters of the Naava Green Wall.
“It would be impossible to place or take care of such a number of plants.”
