Ljubljana's Chamber of Commerce Uses Ribbons of Lush Tropical Life to Create a Botanical Wonderland

Long troughs brimming with tropical plants hang from ceilings, and as the plans grow, their vines and flowers stretch toward the ground. Troughs swirl and curve from ceiling to floor. Still more greens sit in pots on the floor, including in the executive room, which is often used for ceremonial receptions, award ceremonies, banquet luncheons, and meetings for the extended management team. The building also features many glass ceilings, almost like skylights, allowing the sun to dose man and plant in brilliant light.
