DESIGNED BYSTEFANO BOERI INTERIORS, FOR A GREENER CITY
Floating Forest is a green graft in the heart of Milan, created specifically for the Design Week 2022. Conceived as an ecosystem with 610 plants and 30 different species, it multiplies biodiversity and activates the environmental benefits related to urban greening, in connection with others green spaces in Milan. The Floating Forest is also a place for decongesting everyday city flows: an urban device that nurtures new forms of contact and proximity. A refuge from the hectic life, where you can sit, rest and regenerate. The project also aims to leave a legacy for the city of Milan: trees and bushes will be donated to support a regeneration project at Vettabbia Park managed by Soulfood Forestfarms Hub Italia.
The installation will be opened from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. from June 7th to 12th
at Viale Gabriele D'Annunzio, 20 (Darsena) – Milan (Italy)

The idea of a city without green areas is no longer an option. Have you ever tried to draw a rainbow not using the color Green? It’s not a rainbow.

Nature, green, are pure stress relievers. In the city without green, people are much worse off physically and mentally.
