About us

Exploring plant-based innovation and appreciation

We are a transdisciplinary design studio discussing, creating and sharing inspirational ways to grow and interact with nature.

Our services are available in creative and technical capacity for all subjects related to urban farming, biophilic design, and multimedia content and documentation.

Our grow systems are a series of modular toolkits for smart, thought-provoking microfarming and showcasing.

What does Biophilia mean?

Biophilia refers to our innate connection with nature.

Why does Biophilia matter?

Being connected to nature has mutual benefits for human and environmental health and well-being. Increasing urbanisation, industrialisation and ecological concerns make this a topic of current and rising importance.

Services

Our expertise blends traditional agency, product development and consultancy roles

Urban Farming

Having the knowledge and ability to grow your own resources right where they are needed is incredibly empowering, and is key to developing self-sufficient communities.

We'd love to help realise the urban farm of your dreams, from concept to installation, through to brand development and digital strategy.

Biophilic Design

Environments that integrate elements of nature have been proven to reduce stress, boost creativity, clarity of thought, and healing processes; and to nurture spaces that are loved by its occupants.

We apply biophilic design to physical and digital spaces, products and experiences.

Content + Documentation

From our Amsterdam studio our team is constantly testing new ideas and formats for enhanced, multisensory storytelling. This includes photography, video, audio, text, sculpture and interactive media.

We offer custom content, design systems and guidelines, documentation and training.

Grow Systems

Smart farms for fresh perspectives

Build a custom ecosystem for food, fun, medicine and education.

These kits enable anyone to grow anything, anywhere, and are designed to challenge agricultural standards with a more personal, mindful and exciting approach.

We like to use locally sourced repurposed materials not only because this is a sustainable practice- it's also more interesting. Second-hand objects have proven enduring qualities, and a history and character of their own. This provides the foundation for a lasting and engaging relationship with these pieces that you can’t get from mass-manufactured plastic.

By combining IOT, greenhouse and entertainment technologies we can create fully controlled, integrated and monitored environments that are tailored to fit your needs.

Sound, lighting, theatrical and landscaping features all play a role in this urban farming showcase. This attention to the aesthetics brings these pieces beyond mere functionality and into something that’s simply beautiful and a complement to any space.
