These naturally rusted plant displays looked a real treat when planted with some healthy green plants, in this Birmingham Office & Showroom.
Corten Steel also known as weather resistant steel, is a very strong steel alloy. As soon as Corten steel is exposed to the elements it will naturally weather and develop a protective layer of rust. This natural fixed coating of rust provides protection against further corrosion. Characteristic of Corten Steel is the brown orange rust colour and it’s longevity. This rusting process can take 4-5 months to complete.
Healthy Bushy Green
We used high leaf count “Branched” plants which not only look great visually but also give the offices the maximum health benefits. Plants with more leaves absorb more carbon dioxide and release more oxygen. They also clean the air we breathe, by removing chemical toxins present in our indoor environment.
Shapes & Sizes
Corten steel containers come in various shapes & sizes. For this job we used tapered circular displays and big 2m long Rectangular displays. In the open space of the showroom noise was an issue, so we used taller plants to help with sound deadening. In the offices we used lower plants to allow plenty of natural light into the offices.
