The Clorofilas is a creative laboratory which explores the aesthetic potential of plants as raw material for experimentation. Started by Jeanette Ramirez in Barcelona, the laboratory parts of the plant as a basis for rethinking the public and especially private spaces, and ownership and research is its modu operandi.
In this search for the possibilities that are born from the plant and nature as creative material, The Chlorophilasl has penetrated into various fields of production: from educational projects through interior design and expositions.
The laboratory experiments with new forms of coexistence between plants and domestic space, appropriating the everyday objects that surround us daily. Thus, this exercise of ownership is finally a way to re negotiate the boundary between nature and urban space.
This way, its interventions lead us to new ways of seeing the green in a cultured space in which it generates new perspectives, not only with respect to the dichotomy between the green and the city, but also about a friendly lifestyle towards ourselves and towards nature.
