Showering Ferns: Eco Bathroom

At the IDEO BAIN trade fair in Paris, LG Hausys partnered with French designer, Patrick Nadeau for their Green Waters exhibit. The exhibit featured the latest developments in eco-design for bathrooms (savings, recycling and the natural filtration of water). Suspended upside down pots draped ferns from the ceiling and walls, while long grasses sprouted from the ground. The "living" bathroom/laundry included a partnership with HI-MACS® to build the panels which made up the walls, the floor, and the composting toilets which were part of the bathroom. This exhibit is a fine example of one of the many ways "being green" can get the creativity flowing.
