The Tishman Speyer living wall is featured in Iconic Life’s January 2021 article. They note that living walls
“combine science and aesthetics to create spaces that benefit human health and wellness in workplaces, residential
buildings, retail stores and healthcare facilities”.
The Tishman Speyer living wall was featured on the cover of Workplaces Magazine in February 2020. Kessil "is
making it easy for offices and public spaces to go green by using technology that takes the guesswork out of
watering and lighting."
