Mobile Shrubs and Concourse Bird Nests

Something in his artist brain told him to construct a mobile shrub rover made of silk plants. The rover, which appears from the video to be able to handle both normal streets and off-road conditions, has a side hatch door revealing a box shaped compartment with enough room to fit a lone driver. No windows, no problem. The roving shrub is also outfitted with cameras and small LCD screens inside for navigation.

Artificial Boxwood Featured in Hospitality Design Magazine

Artificial Boxwood Featured in HDMAG.com

Recently featured in Hospitality Design Magazine is San Diego's wine parlor, Vine De Syrah. The magazine's article, Fantastic Voyage, illustrates how our artificial Boxwood mat became empirical to the design of the secret underground lounge, a design that Michael Soriano delightfully created with complete freedom.

Soriano wanted to "...play into the whole psychological sense of going into a subterranean environment", and in fact he does while delighting and intensifying all senses. Once patrons figure out how to enter the wine lounge, they can step inside to this welcoming and comfortable childlike mirage, where more Boxwood panels suit up the walls and oversized decor furnishes the semi private lounges. An opulence of mirrors both overhead and on the walls create an illusiveness to the lounge, while feeling comfortably connected inside.

Faux Boxwood Hedge

The use of artificial Boxwood was a creative and affordable solution that created an intimate outdoor entertaining space for the homeowner and guests.
