We are fascinated by the beauty and diversity of nature. Thanks to our research and development activities, we have created plant-based creative materials that create a relationship between landscape and architecture, creating an artistic and inspiring surface for man. The material is called Viaplant.

Leptek-Terv Landscape Architecture Studio has been engaged in Landscape Architecture since 2002. Our work focuses on people-centred renewal of urban spaces, parks, and residential areas, as well as institutional gardens, playgrounds and the regeneration of historic gardens. From the beginning we believe that a Landscape Architect is both an engineer, an artist and a community organizer. For this reason, our work is not limited to design, but also to create values in other social activities related to Landscape Architecture, such as community planning, applied arts, publications and education.

THE MATERIAL

The obvious character of Viaplant is the plant itself – its details, color and texture record one moment of the plant’s development, may it be a summer blossom or a fall leaf. Similarly to amber that captures the history of life Viaplant encapsulates nature’s artistic performance and preserves it in the long run.

Its use is in the field of architecture and design. We can create unique coverings and objects that can bring the atmosphere of nature into our interiors.
And with their lighting, we offer a completely new experience that can endow any home, hotel or office with natural energy and special radiation.

 

Composit Viaplant

In the composite material, the plants are paired with a resistant, water-clear binder, thus providing durable, scratch resistant and easy – to – wash surfaces.

PLA Viaplant

The polylactic acid binder made from vegetable starch can be broken down after use. It is only 0.5-1mm thick and can be bent, so it can be applied to curved surfaces.

Glass Viaplant

Glass, due to its higher resistance, adequately protects enclosed plants even in places with more physical stress, and its special light gives it exclusivity.

One of our main goals in creating Viaplant was to represent the diversity of nature. To this end, we reconsidered the utilization of plant parts generated during the maintenance of urban green spaces. 

And in addition to autumn foliage and mowed grass, we also saw beauty and opportunity in aggressively spreading invasive species such as the Canadian goldenrod or ragweed. 

Only plant parts with a renewal period of up to one year are used in the production of our materials. This is a key factor in minimizing the environmental impact. In addition, it is important for us that the natural raw materials of Viaplant, without exception, come from domestic sources, and the entire work process takes place in Hungary. 

In addition to the finished lamps and furniture, Viaplant is also available as a raw material in the form of panels. You can choose from 12+ types of plant textures, with which countless ideas can be implemented depending on the area of ​​use. 

PLANT TEXTURES

// BASIC COLOUR SAMPLES

With our products we want to show the diversity in the shape, colour and texture of plants. And how we can create an appearance and a unique atmosphere rich in detail by using the simplest plant parts. 

For this purpose, Viaplant panels are made using 15 different plant patterns.

Gramina Yellow translucent

Our illuminated Viaplant surfaces are available with 10 types of plant textures. 

These textures have been selected to fit aesthetically into interiors with different atmosphere. The collection is therefore made up of cooler and warmer shades as well as loose and flowing patterns. 

Transparent surfaces are made using the following plant parts: 

POA / POA FLORI

grass

The grass created during the maintenance of gardens and urban green areas, as well as the maintenance of football field lawns, retains its natural green color thanks to the special drying process.

ROSA

rose petals

Roses have been planted and refined for thousands of years for their ornamental value. When illuminated, they create the same mystical atmosphere as the stories woven around it

PHRAGMIT

reed

The spacious inflorescence of reeds with a straw background gives a flowing pattern and a vibrant image. It is characterized by a soft texture and a golden-brown shade, which is an excellent translucent type.

CALAM-TRITICUM

bushgrass-hay

The bushgrass with akground displays a friendly homogeneous tone. When illuminated its exciting world of form shows even more spectacularly.

LIGNUM BLUE

coloured woodwool

The mowed meadow is complemented by human imagination. The tinted fibrous coverings create an exciting, modern effect. Loose-textured, well-screened type.

LIGNUM MIX
