Moss Wall for Restaurants and Hotels: Designing With Nature in Mind

Moss Wall for Restaurants and Hotels: Designing With Nature in Mind

Many restaurants are turning towards a focus on naturally sourced, organic whole foods. In order to make sure that every detail of your restaurant communicates your vision, design your architecture with nature in mind. Moss wall art is a unique medium that makes the simplest design unforgettable. Busy restaurant owners won’t have to worry about maintaining these preserved displays, making them one of the most convenient ways to infuse your space with the positivity of greenery.

Not only restaurants, but also hotel lobbies and private homes have enjoyed Paloma Teppa’s touch. Her plant artwork has adorned them all. To see faces and shapes emerge from the moss and walls is astounding. The overwhelming feeling one gets when they’re in one of her spaces is the feeling of safety and calm.

See for yourself how Plant The Future designs with nature in mind. Paloma’s work has garnered so much attention she gets commissioned to create spaces across the world in order to feature how plants and art intermingle.

Plant the Future Installations

The 1 Hotel – South Beach, Florida

The 1 Hotel And Homes inauguration featured a custom large scale mural made by Plant the Future to help them pioneer sustainable hospitality. The 1 Hotel makes its stance on Biophilic design clear, “Environmental impact energy binds everything and everyone… We have implemented a wide range of energy and environmental design strategies to keep our footprint small.”

In the lobby, ‘The Swimmer’, an iconic day life swimmer greets guests. Plant the Future also designed indoor tropical gardens which add to the lush atmosphere.

Starbucks Coffee Shop – Miami Beach, Florida

Plant the Future designed custom moss artwork for Starbucks on Collins Avenue in Miami Beach. The ‘living wall’ artwork represents the region around the Tropics of Capricorn and Cancer known as the coffee belt. The soil, climate, and altitude in these regions are ideal for cultivating the signature flavor of Starbucks’ coffee beans.

The Innside Hotel – New York, New York

The Innside Hotel commissioned a moss optical mural design by Plant The Future and 2ALAS for the restaurant at the hotel. ‘The Leap Mural’ was inspired by famous photographer Philippe Halsman’s Jump Book. The piece is called ‘Leap‘ and it represents the moment just after jumping into the air. It is the moment when we feel total freedom and boldness which in turn means this vertical garden work of art reduces stress and improves health for those who meditate on its meaning.  

CVI.CHE 105 Restaurant – Aventura, Florida

‘Chan chan’ means Sun Sun in the traditional language of the Chimu civilization which reigned even before the Incas were in Peru. CVI.CHE 105 commissioned a contemporary art moss mural for their location in Aventura. Plant The Future took this site-specific challenge and imagined a setting that looks as if you could be an archeologist exploring ancient ruins for the first time.

The Ellipse Apartments – Jersey City, New Jersey

The Ellipse Apartments in New Jersey envisioned a nature design scene conceptual art of a sailboat navigating behind the New York City skyline seen through their unique perspective of nearby Jersey City. The impressively sized public art in the lobby evokes the love of the New York skyline as it emerges from the artfully arranged preserved moss. It is aptly called, ‘Sailing on the Hudson.’
