Green City Solutions
A new generation of urban infrastructure
Founding Year: 2014
The CityTree is a customised solution for urban spaces designed under the criteria of sustainability and combines a vertical plants’ display with air purification.
The plants can be arranged freely on the CityTree to display visual information like colour logos or a QR-Code, which links to additional digital content.
The modular design ensures the stability of the plants, while being space-saving, lightweight and air permeable. A digital monitoring and control system optimizes the climatic air effect and plant care.
The urban air purification product serves as a platform for companies to actively improve cities, to mitigate climate change and as an instrument of authentic sustainability communication. Cities benefit from a micro climatic engineering service providing additional possibilities to utilise unused spaces.
