The Eden Project, an educational charity, connects people with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future. Their visitor destination in Cornwall, UK, is nestled in the crater of a huge reclaimed china clay pit. Here, massive Biomes housing the largest rainforest in captivity, serve as a backdrop to the site's striking contemporary gardens.
A series of Biomes house controlled ecosystems for the purposes of education and conservation. The iconic structure of Eden's Biomes provided the inspiration behind the Canopy collection, with its rounded terrariums, gently curved vases and drinkware with subtly domed bases. Explore the Rainforest Biome, with enormous trees towering above you and more than 1,000 varieties of plant, or the Mediterranean Biome, with an amazing variety of plants suited to temperate conditions.
'To explore our dependence on the natural world, to use that understanding to excite people into delivering transformation where they live and to ask really serious questions about what a great future might look like for all of us.'
Tim Smit, Co-Founder of the Eden Project, and Executive Chairman of Eden Project
Sustainability is conveyed through the education of visitors and school children, and by providing examples of sustainability in action through the practices and methods used across the Eden site.
