Nico Osteria Living Wall

Chicago, IL

Inside the historic Thompson Hotel in downtown Chicago lives Omni Ecosystems’® first-ever Omni Tapestry™, functioning as a centerpiece for the hotel bar, Salone Nico. The living wall provides a striking backdrop to the comfortably designed atrium of the contemporary bar and lounge, and consists of more than 2,000 plants in only 390 square feet.

This high level of vegetation is possible by the unique, continuous design of Omni’s patented living wall panels, designed to maximize each plant’s rooting environment while minimizing shading from neighboring plants. The resulting lush tapestry improves air quality, reduces noise, and contributes to a warm congregation space.
