Italian architect & urban planner Stefano Boeri Architetti announced that a multi-sensory floating forest made as an independent ecosystem on the waters of the Darsena in Milan to create a greener city. The installation bearing the name of Timberland, whose mission is to inspire and equip a new generation to move the world forward, is a direct consequence of the important role that nature plays, emphasising the brand’s vision for a greener and more equitable future, along with the concept of circularity, where nothing goes to waste. The project, part of Tortona Design Week, aims to emphasize the brand's commitment to being a force for social and environmental good not only by promoting the re-greening of urban areas, but also by highlighting the latest in eco-innovative products.A meaningful and recognisable attraction created on the waters of the Darsena in Milan, a striking element on the urban landscape, designed by Stefano Boeri Interiors. The multidisciplinary studio founded by architects Stefano Boeri and Giorgio Donà that operates and develops projects and research in the field of interior architecture, exhibition design and product design.The Floating Forest goal is not only to convey new forms of environmental responsibility and new ways of occupying and transforming urbanized spaces, but to offer a place of intersection and reconciliation between the natural sphere and human beings. A space for sociality where the distance that the individual puts between himself and the natural world takes on new shapes and sizes. The forest has been conceptually and physically studied as an independent ecosystem, where 610 plant and 30 species multiply biodiversity and activate environmental benefits related to urban forestry, in connection with other green spaces in MilanThe forest offers not only an environment where you can rediscover the importance of biodiversity and the benefits of nature, but also a fully immersive experience, both physical and virtual, that through the scent of the flowers and the tactile qualities of the chosen species, involves all the senses. A range of trees, such as Maple, Birch and Apple, will be present, as well as bushes such as the Aronia Berry, Hydrangea, Mahonia and Pittosporum, and perennial grasses such as Stipa, Eulalia, Anemone, Daylily, Purple Verbena and Pampas.
