The California Academy of Sciences, located in San Francisco, CA, holds the Osher Rainforest.
The Osher Rainforest is a
four-story glass dome that houses exotic plants, animals, butterflies, and marine life. It is the largest of its
the world. Kessil partnered with the Cal Academy to provide lighting for multiple plant exhibits within the glass
With such a variety of plant life, Kessil curated unique lighting solutions for each exhibit to mimic actual
conditions and promote healthy growth. With rare, fragile butterflies also inhabiting the interior rainforest,
lights were the perfect solution to provide the correct growth spectrum for the plants while being safe for the
wildlife cohabitating in the space.
