THE MATERIAL

Viaplant started as an art project back in 2015 – led by Tájék Art Group – in response to an invitation from the City of Pilsen – European Capital of Culture. Consequently, the concept continued to evolve and today Viaplant is an independent brand – Viaplant® is a composite panel with UV and frost-proof properties.

 

During the research, we also reconsidered the utilization of the plant parts created during the maintenance work of urban green spaces. In addition to the autumn foliage and the cut grass, we have also seen beauty and opportunity in aggressively invasive species such as the Canadian Goldrod or ragweed. Viaplant contains only the renewable plant parts i.e. leaves and flowers with regeneration cycle of 1 year or less, which is crutial for minimizing environmental load.  Due to the natural ingredients, hand picking and processing, all our panels are unique

 

It is very important for us to source our materials locally. Viaplant’s organic material comes solely from domestic sources with no exception. The entire process from collecting the raw material to the final product is done in Hungary.
