ORTO Living Covering by Studio IVANKA (HU)

Posted by Susanne Fritz on 30.03.2011 - Tagged as: , , , ,

Orto is a floor and wall covering system with a network of splits on its surface to plant moss

ORTO is a decorative concrete with moss and provides an alternative solution for common planting. The plants can be set into the furrows of the elements thus forming a breathing green surface along the ornamentation.

The pattern is inspired by the beautiful network of casual splits in nature. Moss is growing in small gaps surviving under extreme circumstances and is therefore a low maintenace plant.

The pattern is inspired by casual splits found in natural environments
