Forests by Mini Living

Ott 12, 2016 designdiffusion

As one of the landmark installations at last month’s London Design Week, Mini Living’s “Forests” taps into an important urban trend. With the ever-growing scarcity of affordable housing in big cities and an evolution in workplace needs as offices go mobile, “third places” – contact points that lie between work and home—have grown in importance.

Designed by Asif Khan, the project explores three interpretations of the “third space,” with each greenhouse-like installation designed to encourage a specific activity: relaxation, connection, or productivity. A special focus is put on plants as a way to relax and improve urban quality of life.
