BE INSPIRED BY MOSS
In architecture, moss is one of the design strategies that supports the reconnection of people with nature. Experts consider organic design to be a factor that is able to satisfy our innate need to connect with life on this planet.
Moss is considered one of the oldest plants on Earth. According to fossilized findings, scientists estimate its occurrence as early as 400 million years ago. In most cases, mosses grow mainly in areas with humidity and shade in forests or on the edges of streams and rivers.
Some species are adapted to sunny and dry areas, such as alpine rocks or sand dunes. Many mosses can sometimes survive drying for several months and then return to life after rehydration.
The use of moss itself is originally attributed to Buddhist priests who began using moss in their garden buildings more than 1,300 years ago. The most popular place is the Saihoji Temple in Kyoto, Japan, named Koke Dera or Moss Temple.
In order for moss to be effectively applied in interior realizations, it is necessary for it to get several types of modifications. Only the highest quality pieces from the most suitable locations are selected. After a gentle collection from nature, the moss is treated and cleaned. Subsequently, the moss goes through a preservation process to maintain its perfect texture, quality and also color. In this natural moss, natural moisture is replaced by ecological dye. Once installed in the interior, this stabilized moss requires no further maintenance or irrigation. Mummified mosses guarantee their longevity without loss of color and natural freshness.
Installing moss in the interior brings with it a number of benefits that are invaluable today. A very important feature is especially the absorption of sound in the room. Indoor moss also naturally contributes to improving mood, relieving headaches and reducing overall stress. Moss not only naturally enlivens interiors, but also brings peace and provides positive energy.
