Bringing the outside inside

4 May 2017

Fusing art and planting when indoor greenery becomes living art

Urban LivePicture makes its UK debut at Grand Designs London Live 2017, the multi-award winning home inspirations event at London’s ExCel from April 29 to May 7, 2017. It is being launched by UK company Urban Roof Gardens, which has exclusive rights to sell Urban LivePicture direct to consumers in the UK (Stand: GF10). A special aromatic “Herb Edition” has been created for Grand Designs Live comprising a selection of herbs and designed to hang on a wall in the kitchen, affording keen chefs the freshest source herbs for their dishes.


LivePicture is a living wall-hung picture system that uses plants to create a healthier and more attractive living and working environments. The health advantages of plants in the workplace are well understood, however, they can take up valuable space. Mobilane has developed LivePicture to deliver the aesthetic and health benefits of plants without taking up valuable floor space and in a system that requires minimal maintenance. Due to its innovative design LivePicture requires no power and consequently can be installed virtually anywhere. The benefits of using LivePicture include cleaner air, improved humidity, reduced noise pollution, lower stress levels and increased productivity levels. The LivePicture plant cassettes can be changed in moments and need watering only every four weeks.

Urban LivePicture was invented and designed in Holland in 2016 and has already proved extremely popular in commercial spaces – hotels, restaurants, offices. This is the first time, however, it is available to be purchased by private individuals in the UK. If you are visiting the Grand Designs show, pop in to stand GF10 and check out LivePicture.

Urban Roof Gardens

Urban Roof Gardens are London’s leading roof terrace company and design studio, comprising architects, engineers, designers, horticulturalists and construction specialists. The company offers a full concept to completion service for roof gardens, interiors and architecture. Urban Roof Gardens have successfully integrated Mobilane’s LivePicture range into their bespoke product range for the benefit of new and existing clients.

Pierre Wilter, Design Director of Urban Roof Gardens, said: “Urban LivePicture is far more chic than your average pot plant. It provides an inspirational, but simple method of bringing the outside inside in a very dramatic and effective way and is perfect for city dwellers with no outdoor space. And being vertical takes up zero floor or shelf space.”

Urban LivePicture is available for purchase from Urban Roof Gardens online store. Please note Urban Roof Gardens are currently only selling Urban LivePicture within the M25 area, but will consider requests outside this zone.
