Space for inspiration

“Imagine waking up in a house surrounded by greenery. You take a deep breath and fill your lungs with clean air. As you leave your house, you pick some vegetables from your roof for lunch.

From the moment you start your day, flipping the light switch, turning on the kettle or opening the tap, it is the small actions that are effortlessly supported by technology and data. Technological advances guarantee clean air, drinking water and available energy, allowing you to do what you want.

However, we don’t do this alone; we do it together. Together, we are building a future where life and technology go hand in hand. But what does this future look like? What role will data play in it? And what technologies can help us shape this future?

Enter our CityLab on the 9th floor where innovative, data-driven solutions for the sustainable city of the future will be presented. Get inspired and discover what sustainable contribution you can make to the city of tomorrow.”

Integration Applications & Data

From living in a smart future home to visualisations and virtual realities? Behind the demo zone is a world of sensors that collect, process, transmit, share and visualise data. What does that world look like? What is being measured and who is involved? In the visualisation below, you can see how different applications for the future house with green roofs are monitored for air quality and food production. You can also see how the data is then standardised and linked together. This data comes together in a server, a platform that collects all the data in the Demozone, interprets it and then makes it available for visualisation. This is displayed in dashboards, digital twins. In the VR space, you can interact with this data.

Leaf stands for Let's Expand A Forest, how we can green the space around us with simple and well-designed solutions. At our Leaf Factory, we design and produce various pieces of furniture, all of which contain a Leaf basin filled with our plants. The tropical plants are grown in a tray at our partner VDE and are available in two sizes. The Leaf medium tray for all our tropical and outdoor plants and the Leaf small tray for small tropical plants and especially edible crops. Our furniture can be placed in your office, hotel or restaurant as stand-alone, hanging from the ceiling or on the wall, including grow lights if it is too dark. We have developed furniture for keeping edible herbs, including a complete circular herb model. Ordering the trays from your wholesaler brings the harvested trays back to the grower. We think beLEAF into expanding that forest so for selling every 5 medium trays, we donate a tree to grow somewhere in Europe. The city needs to go green again, as well as the rest of our world.

There is an invisible danger in many buildings: excessive CO2 levels. Do you also want to know whether the air quality is sufficient in your building? And would you also like to monitor this over a longer period of time so that you do not have to take unnecessary and often expensive measures? By measuring humidity, CO2 and temperature with our in-house developed Climate Sensor the indoor climate becomes visible/measurable. With this insight, improvement proposals can be made or not. By making this transparent for everyone, you show people that you care about their health.
