Pennsylvania to Unveil Largest Green Wall in North America

Tomorrow, Pennsylvania is scheduled to unveil North America's largest green wall installation. The building, designed by Kim Wilkie, is a public restroom facility at the Longwood Garden's new East Conservatory Plaza. The bermed, arching pod-like complex is open to one side and supports a natural outdoor amphitheater on the other. The interior green wall is a total of 4,072 square feet, which is almost twice the size of the second largest green wall in North America.

The majority of the astonishing 47,000 plants are ferns, which are embedded in a non-soil growth medium. Remote operated drip line irrigation and an array of sensors maintain the plants to help ensure quality control and longevity of the plants. The wall essentially acts like a filter and lung for the complex. An estimated 15,500 lbs of dust and toxins will be removed from the air each year, and the more visitors, the more CO2 for the plants to metabolize and exchange for O2.

"Sayl" Chairs Combine Beauty of Sailboats and Principles of Suspension Bridges

This new chair is designed by Yves Béhar in collaboration with Herman Miller. It was inspired by the engineering principles of a suspension bridge and the elegance of a sail, explaining its moniker, the Sayl chair. Hailing from San Francisco, Béhar looked to the city's iconic Golden Gate Bridge for inspiration. The spine of the seat back reflects the structure of the bridge, and the full, light shape of the mesh material alludes to the sail, just as the Golden Gate is often surrounded by the distintive sails from nearby sailboats. The chair is also manufactured with minimal environmental impact.
