Nguyen La Chanh designed this brilliant living moss bath mat as a project for her degree at ECAL Switzerland. However after photos became published on several blogs, and countless comments started pouring in asking where it could be bought, she is taking steps to put “Larosée” into production.
We all love the sensation of living green on our feet, and Nguyen La Chanh designed a product that brings this sensational feeling in the center of our home. The living moss bath mat: “Larosée” is an ecological product manufactured using sustainable production methods and recycled materials.
Those concerned that their recently washed feet might become dirty after standing on the moss carpet should be reassured to learn that there is no soil involved in this living bath mat at all. Instead the moss attaches itself to the recycled vegetal latex foam in a similar way as it would to a wall. The moss draws any sustenance it needs by absorbing humidity from the air and through soaking up the water from your feet, in doing so forming a symbiotic relationship with the user.
The living moss bath mat: “Larosée” by Nguyen La Chanh, is now being sold by , a company who pride themselves on their use of sustainable manufacturing methods and recycled materials to produce ecological products.
