Bring nature into your home

– Skogluft: the new trend from Scandinavia
If we don’t go outside anymore, the outsides will come in. That’s Norwegian Jørn Viumdal’s way of thinking. He developed the Skogluft method: by putting up racks -or even entire walls!- of plants in your home or office, you’ll feel fresh, energetic and fit. Because we all suffer from what Viumdal calls ‘shortage of nature’. We hardly go into the woods anymore, we feel listless and tired. For twenty years – in part, working together with NASA – he studied the effects of plants. The result is the incredibly popular book Skogluft (‘forest air’), in which Jørn explains step by step how we can all bring nature inside our homes.
