WASHINGTON DC – NATIONAL GEO

The National Geographic Society is one of the largest non-profit scientific and educational institutions in the world. According to their stated Green Vision, the Society aims to be an international leader for global conservation and environmental sustainability. At the National Geographic Channel offices, a VERSA WALL® was installed to greet employees and visitors with lush, vibrant growth in the lobby area and serve as a visual reminder that they are fully committed to this vision. This VERSA WALL® utilizes corner trays and integrates a 180-degree curve around one side of the unit to allow the plant palette to flow seamlessly from front to back. The irrigation system incorporated into the unit allows for an asymmetrical design and remains hidden without sacrificing our ability to provide nutrients and water to the whole VERSA WALL®.
