A striking neon conversation starter
NGUNNAWAL COUNTRY, CANBERRA
Uniquely instagrammable, conversation-starting moss installation for funky Canberra co-working space Nesuto
Wanting a feature that sparked natural conversations, added depth and colour to the space, and effortlessly marketed the brand, Nesuto engaged MBS for a signature style moss piece.
Moss walls or art pieces cannot be easily pre-designed. Instead, like a jigsaw puzzle without a picture to refer to, each moss piece is chosen to fill gaps and balance neighbouring mounds. Colours, textures and placement used often take root from aerial views of forests and mountain ranges, but the intricacies of its creation is down to the moment.
Here, lighter and larger pool moss neighbours the vibrant tufts of mood moss, while forest moss fill gaps to complement the variety of textures, shades and sizes. Created on-site, moss is built onto custom fabricated backing with pre-installed steel spigots to fix the branded neon lighting structure in place.
The result is reflective of the treetops of the amazon basin, and matched with the neon signage, creates a striking conversation piece. The introduction of nature and plants into a work environment boosts creativity, productivity and provides an inviting aesthetic for future customers.
