viridum – which is short for “green wall” – is an innovative and holistic revegetation system. It is our goal to greenify every single square meter of a city’s unutilized surface area in order to make our cities green again. Our system works both on vertical and horizontal surface areas, which enables a multitude of use cases. For example, it can be mounted on facades, rooftops, noise-insulating walls, bus stops, and even indoors.
At the moment, living and/or working in big cities is sometimes not the most enjoyable experience, especially on hot summer days or during tropical nights. The unbearable heat, noise, and pollution that is found in cities are a major problem of our modern times; it affects us both physically and mentally in a very negative way. However, by greenifying cities on a larger scale, we can stop these developments and tackle all these problems at the same time. Because of its plants, viridum can cool down its surrounding air, absorb harmful toxins and pollutants, and reduce the noise levels, while also contributing to the attractiveness of the city scape. Thus, one system can improve the micro-climate of cities on all of the most important aspects and contribute its share to the development of a Smart and Green City.
Our vision is that of a green, clean, and enjoyable city where people like to live and work. By combining nature and technology in a revolutionary way, we want to turn urban spaces into places that nobody wants to escape anymore in search for fresh air and cool temperatures.
