Chichester, United Kingdom, August 29, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- ANS Group Europe, leading designers of indoor and outdoor living walls, is set to install an interior living wall on a ship for Crystal Cruises, one of the word’s must luxurious cruise line companies.
ANS Group Europe has designed the living wall for an alfresco dining area, using a varied and diverse selection of subtropical plants. This is the first living wall ever to be installed on a cruise ship, and will receive regular maintenance by an on-board florist team. The wall is designed in a world map format, and the captain will visit it throughout the voyage to place an extra plant as a mark of the ship’s current location; this will allow passengers to follow their cruise’s route in a unique way. The living wall itself will be 11.5m long and 2.4m high, with a total m2 of 27.6.
Crystal Cruises is an award-winning cruise company, boasting two of the world’s highest-rated ships: Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony. Priding themselves on a passion for discovery and unbeatable luxury, Crystal Cruises offers voyages to celebrated must-see locations as well as smaller, lesser-known places.
A spokesperson for ANS Group Europe said: “This bespoke project is an exciting and exhilarating scheme to be part of. Installing living walls on a cruise ship is taking us to a completely new level and opens up all sorts of possibilities. When you think this wall will be travelling as far north as Lapland and down to Cape Horn, it takes your breath away! Crystal Cruises is one of the biggest cruise lines in the world, and we are delighted to work with them, and to create such an innovative concept which is sure to amaze their clients.”
