Mobilane in the Media
Mobilane UK has enjoyed a lot of publicity in various magazines such as the Article on Page 50 of the Cafe Culture February 2016 edition on the LivePanel installed at Pinkmans Bakery Bristol.
The ‘Designing for Sustainability?’ article by James Bennett-East on page 25 of the February 2016 issue of the Premises & Facilities Management Magazine also highlights the benefits of the Mobilane Green screen as a graffiti-deterrent, as well as a way of ‘providing sustainable and secure boundaries around gardens, schools, colleges, hospital and other sites’.
The Bali Product and Affiliate News featured an article titled ‘Mobilane Strengthens Approved Supplier and Installer Network’.
The article confirmed that Mobilane prides itself on attracting the UK’s leading experts in the field of landscaping and living systems. Installers within the network have to demonstrate the highest standards required before acceptance onto the programme.
Information on how to join the Installer Network was presented on page 42 as well as specifications of the LivePanel system on Page 43.

Innovative Greening Of Indoor Environments
Paul Garlick of Mobilane explains the latest options for indoor plants, and looks at a recent innovative interior living wall installation at Pinkmans Bakery, Bristol.
With customers expecting ever more interesting and high quality experiences when dining or purchasing food, one of the growing trends for businesses looking to deliver something different is the use of living elements – plants – in innovative ways. However, getting the balance right is the challenge. How do you introduce plants into a retail or eating environment in a way that is effective, yet unobtrusive and low maintenance?
Established by London bakers Steven Whibley and Troels Bendix, Pinkmans Bakery in Bristol’s fashionable Park Street is a fully licensed bakery and cafe, serving breads, pizza, coffee and cakes for takeout as well as eating in, throughout the daytime and evening. The bakery has an open kitchen and a wood fired oven.
Plants are a big feature of the interior design of the establishment. As well as a wide selection of hanging plants and strategically and cleverly placed pots.
Pinkmans Bakery also features a 2 square metre LivePanel internal living wall recessed into a wall in the dining area and incorporating a pink neon ‘P’ nestling within the plants.
The system was installed by Just Plants of Bristol, and as Adam Bristowe explains, “Pinkmans Bakery is a very exciting project. The ethos is all about natural food and connecting with the environment, while the experience for shoppers and diners is interesting.
The modules have a specially developed substrate designed to enable the plants to establish and thrive, and the feeding of the plants with water and nutrients is ensured by an integrated irrigation and drainage system.
This helps to ensure the system is low maintenance. And with a wide selection of plants which can be used within the system, LivePanel allows for a lot of creative freedom in the design.
Plants can even be changed to suit the seasons or even mood. And of course for the business which takes seriously its commitment to sustainability, nothing says ‘green’ quite like plants.
