READING, PA — Ambius announced it was recently recognized at the 2023 International Plantscape Awards on Thursday in Tampa, Florida, earning 19 awards for innovative designs. The awards, which were part of the four-day Tropical Plant International Expo, recognized top industry designers and honored exceptional interior plantscape designs.

Ambius designers from across North America submitted entries in ten categories. Ambius brought home an award in all ten categories including, Service, Design and Major Renovation. In addition to the ten Platinum awards and eight Gold awards, Ambius designer, Charlee Storner, earned a Diamond award, the ceremony’s highest-ranking award.

“These awards not only showcase the exceptional talents of each of our Ambius designers, but they also highlight the passion and detail that goes into creating world-renowned designs,” said Lorri MacHarg, President of Ambius. “Operating with a mission to bring clients’ vision to life, our designers strive to ensure every creation is unique. We are proud of our designers and we are honored to receive these awards.”

In a 2022 study of 3,000 office workers, Ambius found that 45% of respondents spend less than 30 minutes a day outdoors. Each award-winning design celebrates biophilia, bringing elements of nature indoors to embrace the range of benefits that greenery and plants can have in the built environment.
