Interior biophilic design is gaining traction in the hospitality industry, particularly urban restaurants where real estate is often limited—and tech-tethered customers crave a connection to the natural world. Whether you’re running a casual bistro or vanguard dining establishment, indoor vertical gardens are not just decorative.
Functionally, they make the most of available space while also serving as a natural sound dampener in high-traffic areas. Moreover, they are cost-effective for restaurants to offer fresh herbs and edibles with a much smaller footprint. At Pandemic Design Studio, our individual modular wall planters are a perfect product for your restaurant with five available sizes and unlimited configuration potential.
Aesthetics, Function and Appeal of Indoor Vertical Gardens
Vertical gardens can supply an endless source of leafy greens and aromatics for restaurants– yet take up very little indoor space. Whether it’s fresh dill, edible flowers, or tender microgreens, it’s all possible with the right setup.
Vertical garden kits are increasingly commonplace, but these living wall systems– often made of PVC and plastic– have little in the way of aesthetic appeal. Our ceramic wall planters offer an experiential sculptural element that is without rival in the vertical garden world and will elevate and invigorate the look and feel of your restaurant.
The design of our handmade wallscape planters is inspired by the nodes on a tree, where the branch extends from the trunk. Organic in design and materials, our wall planters are crafted in five sizes and available in five standard colors. Mix and match sizes and colors to create a stunning vertical garden that will be sure to enhance any space and give your patrons something new to talk about unique to your restaurant.
True Farm-to-Table Dining Experiences
The demand for locally grown organic produce is also on the rise. And restaurants are responding with plant-based menus that feature colorful edibles grown right on the premises. Vertical gardens enable chefs to incorporate greenery in their dishes, whether as a garnish or vegetarian centerpiece.
The majority of herbs prefer drier soil conditions and therefore are excellent choices. Oregano, spearmint, sage, rosemary, thyme, basil, chives, and cilantro are versatile favorites. Consider planting exciting varieties of edible flowers like pansy, violas, day lilies, nasturtium, marigold, or hibiscus for your specialty cocktails.
