The scenographic presence of ‘green’ in the interiors is not only motivated by an aesthetic factor linked to trends, but also by the positive effects of relaxation and well-being generated by the sight and contact with the ‘green’ element at home, in the office, in commercial spaces, in food and hospitality premises. This pleasure, which combines pleasantness and well-being, puts demands in terms of light, water and maintenance. BENETTI HOME, a young and dynamic Italian company, has developed a product with unique characteristics, both from a technical point of view and for the fantastic aesthetic impact, which effectively solves the critical issues that make the use of indoor ‘green’ uneasy.
BENETTI MOSS is the name of the zero-maintenance vertical garden for interiors made with a 100% natural and stabilized lichen, easy to manage, starting from installation, which is very simple and can be foreseen in the project step or even later in already furnished and ‘lived in’ environments. Featuring highest versatility of application, the garden can be placed on the walls and even on the ceiling. This product offers advantages from the point of view of cleaning, thanks to the absence of electrostatic charge that does not attract dust, ensuring stability and durability over time, as well as being unwelcome to insects. This panel features good sound-absorbing qualities and fire-retardant properties certified in class A by the rigorous American fireproof tests. Since the ‘moss’ idea was born about 15 years ago, it makes use of cladoniastellaris, a moss collected in the woods of Northern Europe, which is now widely used in interior design.
BENETTI HOME was born in 2016, but the company can boast thirty years of professional career of the owners in the field of interior design, as well as on a well-known brand on the marketplace. Product customization is a key point. By choosing BENETTI MOSS vertical gardens, customers will rely on shapes and sizes capable to be adapted to any space requirement and designer’s vision, to create customized walls based on chromatic games as well as the combination of full and empty spaces, dimensions and volumes. BENETTI MOSS allows to realize logos on neutral backgrounds, or vertical and horizontal stripes or decorative motifs in all shades of colours, as creativity is the only limit. On the basic colour (cream) of the lichen when it is collected, food and totally non-toxic dyes can be added, choosing from a range of 12 colours in the catalog, even if green in its various shades still remains the prevailing colour.
Among BENETTI HOME’s latest proposals always in line with the philosophy of customization, there is BATIK MOSAIC: it is a very light and very thin resin mosaic on which real photographic images can be digitally printed, in any size, glossy or matt. It can be placed in any kind of environment, outdoor or indoor, suitable for wellness and spa areas, as it is resistant to humidity. It can also be applied over an existing wall, without requiring brickwork. Among the novelties arriving in 2021, there is BENETTI SOUND, an innovative idea linked to the theme of the vertical garden, which comes with an explicit and precise claim: ‘If walls could sing …. ” and which completes the range of BENETTI HOME products, making it even more original and attractive. “It consists of an aluminum panel – explains Stivens Benetti – like that one supporting the MOSS and capable of producing sound as the result of a research to optimize sound and its diffusion, which benefits from high-level electronic and sound technology.” Through its range of products and services, BENETTI HOME offers the market solutions able to combine extreme ease of application and use with the pleasure of a perceived sensoriality that generates well-being.
