We all know oxygen and good air quality are essential to not only our continued existance but also to our everyday quality of life but somewhere along the way we forgot just how important and neglected our indoor spaces where we spend 87% of our time.

Not all plants are created equal

This is a curated list of the plants that are optimum at purifing the air and removing VOC's plus they easier to keep than all the rest - click on each for an overview and care guide.


NASA did an extensive study on the effects of certain common indoor plants ability to provide a natural way of removing toxic agents such as benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene from the air, helping neutralize the effects of Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)emitted as gases from certain household items. NASA researchers suggest efficient air cleaning is accomplished with at least one plant per 100 square feet of home or office space.

  • Benzene
  • Ammonia
  • Formaldehyde
  • Trichloroethylene
  • Xylene
  • Toluene

Science confirms how important plants are to our daily lives, confirming that plants are the best solution to improving indoor air quality. Yet it is a continual task to keep plants alive in these environments, thats why we designed -

Glasshouse Cube

Glasshouse Cube is a prototype for a self contained plant system. The cube not only keeps the plant alive without any human assistance but enhances its natural abilities to improve air quality and remove toxins. Monitoring the plants output using IoT sensors and image recognition to keep it in an optimum environment.


Glasshouse Berlin, is a project run by creative agency, Palm Beach.
