THE MATERIAL

We create artistic details using plants by applying engineering methods and skills. Researching this field has grown to become a passion. Our greatest inspiration is the limitless diversity of Viaplant, and the belief that the awe-inspiring beauty and atmosphere of nature can indeed be relocated into interior spaces and our everyday culture of objects.

After lengthy experimentation and development, a thought that started out as an art project gave life to the independent product that is Viaplant, a patented plant-based composite material.

REPURPOSED
mark of nature and engineering design

 

We re-imagined the re-use of plant parts generated and discarded during the maintenance of urban green spaces. Amongst others we also see beauty in aggressively spreading invasive species (e.g. ragweed, reed, Canadian goldenrod, etc.) as well, and re-utilise them. We only use plant parts – leaves and flowers – whose regeneration cycle is one year or less. We consider as very important the local sourcing of all our natural materials, and that the entire work process is carried out in Hungary.

 

VISUAL AESTHETICS, EXPERIENCE, ATMOSPHERE
it’s not ‘like that’, it’s ‘exactly that’

 

Viaplant does not imitate nature, but is one and the same. Using real plants, it creates texture and appearance rich in colour and detail, and emits a wholly unique atmosphere once light shines through.

 

TIMELESS
always stylish

 

Thanks to the durable materials used and the aesthetics of nature, Viaplant does not follow passing trends, but opts for the truly long-term.

 

PERSONALITY
material’s second layer is its story

 

Wall tile, specials, lamp or furniture – Where the given plant comes from and what its story is makes all the difference. A leaf from a 500-year old lime tree, turf from a famous football pitch or a recycled bride’s bouquet. A certain something that we can relate to.

TEXTURES

Due to the seasonality of the plants used for the production, our stocks are variable. If any of our materials have caught your attention, please contact us for availability.

 

Our panels come in two different finishes, glossy and matte, and depending on the texture of each plant and the type of resin used, some of our panels are well lit. These include COTIFLORA, GRAMINA and CALAM.
