Rabobank adds new green options to its environmental office credentials
Blending an office working environment with a communal space where colleagues and visitors congregate for lunch, time out and meetings is not an easy task. At Rabobank, with its history in providing funds to agriculture, growers and farming, they stepped up with the greenest of solutions – the LiveDivider and LivePicture options from Mobilane.
The brief? To create a warm, inviting and comfortable zone for staff and visitors – and that meant PLANTS. Rent a Plant, an interior plant specialist, took the brief and, after supplying some plants in the recent past, they met the company’s instructions head-on, placing the LiveDividers and a smattering of LivePictures to complement the theme.
LiveDivider: Bringing people closer
The best option to separate yet soften the working environment at the Rabobank offices was the LiveDivider. Having the superior benefit of planting on both sides, the LiveDivider gives green impact across the space whilst still forming a solid visual demarcation. To offer the best blend without too powerful a colour statement, the plants chosen were subtle in foliage colour: Scindapsus Pictus, Scindapsus Aureus and Dracaena compacta.
Result: A great, green workspace, multi-use and used extensively. A hit with employees, management and visitors alike.
