The vertical garden at the Replay store in Florence covers a 7m high L-shaped wall in the 3-storey boutique. The garden is inspired by the undergrowth of a temperate forest, similar to what could be found in the lower parts of the hills not too far away from the city of Florence.
Although as with any indoor garden, the plants themselves are of mostly of tropical origin to do well in the indoor climate. The overall picture is a soft, yet dense and fresh greenery, with some small-flowering plants like lanterns on top of the darker background.
A picture that shall remind of the undergrowth in springtime, when it has had time to grow before the leaves of the canopy have fully developed and absorbed all incoming light.
