Living green room dividers dress up office in Amsterdam
- LiveDivider PLUS
On the Piet Hein quay in Amsterdam, Success Factory’s employees are now surrounded by vertical living greenery. With the modular green LiveDivider PLUS, the company can offer its employees a healthy working environment without sacrificing too much valuable space.
More privacy without sacrificing space with living green LiveDivider PLUS
Success Factory is a network marketing platform that offers people an alternative to a 9-to-5 job. Due to their huge growth, the company needed more privacy in the office space. At the same time, they wanted to create more greenery in the office garden, without having to give up too many square metres to do so. In a short time, the company has grown to over 100 employees and they want to provide them with the best possible workspace. Success Factory approached Botanico to help them do this. Botanico is a family-run company that installs, maintains and revitalises indoor greenery. From their expertise, they recommend Mobilane’s living green LiveDivider PLUS.
Expert advice from official Mobilane partner Botanico
Botanico stands for quality and craftsmanship, which is partly why the company has been an official Mobilane partner for some time now. Nicolette van der Nagel, Account Manager at Botanico says: “We were asked if there was a possibility to screen off spaces and green them vertically at the same time. Mobilane’s LiveDividers are narrow and there is no see-through, so you can really create separate spaces. They are ideal for these kind of requests. Success Factory was attracted to the LiveDivider PLUS by the fact that it is a stable indoor design that looks stylish, compact and sleek. The fact that it does not require power also proved an advantage for the company. So there is much more flexibility and less energy consumption. The company had initially ordered four, to see how it liked it but now 22 LiveDividers decorate the office building.”
Unique design and solution-oriented
The LiveDivider PLUS is a modular green room divider, used to divide spaces and create more sub-rooms or privacy. The product was nominated at Dutch Design week 2022,for its unique watering system, sleek design and solution-oriented function at the same time. Modules made of sturdy metal can be stacked on top of each other as required. The interchangeable plant cassettes on both sides allow you to create the desired height and look yourself. The planting can easily be changed according to season or occasion. This creates more freedom to arrange a space flexibly and bring living greenery into the middle of the working environment.
Benefits of plants in the office
It has long been known that plants improve air quality. According to a study at Wageningen University, this can even make a 5% difference compared to rooms without living greenery. However, there are even more benefits of plants in the office, for both employee and employer. For instance, employees experience higher satisfaction with their workplace and their own performance with plants in the working environment. Because plants look atmospheric and we have a natural penchant for nature, employees are more relaxed among plants. Thus, productivity and creativity can increase by as much as 15%. This in turn has the effect that team members are less likely to call in sick (down from 36% to 16%), according to the same WUR study. This amounts to about 1.6 sick days per employee per year.
