French designer Patrick Nadeau has created an installation for Italian brand Boffi, consisting of hanging domes covered in living plants.

Called Rainforest, the installation comprises a series of Corian frames held together with cable ties.

A type of hanging Spanish moss called Tillandsias usneoïdes, which doesn’t need soil, is draped over these frames.

The domes are suspended from the ceiling and used to light the Boffi product displays.

The installation was displayed during Designer’s Days in Paris, the London Design Festval and Milano Design-in-the-City.

The Boffi furniture is very minimal, with pure style, essentially composed of elementary volumes in a close relationship with the ground. The installation comes as counterpoint to this aesthetic. It is as light as air, structured by the complex and random geometry of plants.
