Showtime Studios Displays GRO2 GroWall for Showtime House
Showtime, the cable network, celebrates their television series by debuting its annual Showtime Display House. Collaborating with some of the world's top designers, the Showhouse exemplifies high design with new technologies.

Representing Showtime's "The Big C" show, KokoBo Plantscapes beautifully installed a GRO2 living wall to complete the effect. A lush verdant wall, accented with artistic lighting and a large white rabbit sculpture, creates an interesting living canvas for an HD LCD flat panel 3D TV showing scenes depicting the healing and calming powers of nature.
While it may not quite be “Alice’s Wonderland” with white rabbits and talking plants, the whimsical fairytale theme interpretation by BG Studio International of one of the network’s hit shows was successfully achieved by integrating a living wall into the design of the room.
