These natural carpets were discovered at the 2009 Milan Furniture Fair. The beautiful biodegradable moss planter at the Tokyo Fiber Sensware exhibition definitely stood out. Designer Makoto Azuma, who mostly work with plants, collaborated with Unitika Ltd. to create an indoor garden on the floor.
To make it possible, a 3D knitted and spun fabric were used. Terramac® is an eco-friendly material which serves as a receptacle for the planter’s roots, protects the seeds, and holds the moss together.
As the planter biodegrades, CO2 is captured by the plants through the process of photosynthesis. The name Terramac® means “sons of the mother Earth”.
Generally found growing on the sloping sides of embankments, moss can now be integrated within the heart of our homes and cities. It’s great when industry meets design to offer practical solutions!
