It all started with ...

Growing up in France, I was fascinated by the positive, essential impact plants have on our well-being. In 2006, with a Masters in Plant Physiology from the University of Poitiers, I planted myself in the world of horticultural research, and continued to study horticultural engineering and Green Buildings at the National Institute of Horticulture in Angers, France.

Arriving in Canada a few years later, driven by my passion, I jumped into extensive plant research at the Centre for Architectural Ecology at BCIT in Vancouver.

Living wall design was a newer concept in Canada and I was eager to be involved. I saw that Canada, and Vancouver in particular, while rich in outdoor nature, lacked the integration of plants and nature in indoor spaces, and specifically in interior design.

I believed that the potential green, living wall technology had to revolutionize the indoor spaces of Canadians. This is why I created ByNature.

Today, our customers are consistently impressed with our design options and the impact plant life has on their personal and professional lives.

This is what brings me joy and keeps me inspired.

Florian Morin

Production & Staff Manager

Photography and cinema have been my greatest passions since a young age. When I have time, I like going outside of Vancouver to take best shots in nature or during my travels around the world for my instagram account. I like watching movies or listening to my vinyl collection to relax.
