About us

An innovative, interdisciplinary mix from biologists and engineers to designers.


What is behind Oxygen at Work?

Why do we do it?

The frequent occurrence of health problems at work makes it clear that offices are not equipped to meet the performance requirements of employees. In addition, energy is unnecessarily wasted on mechanical air conditioning, which is harmful to the environment and contributes to global warming.

What is our goal?

We want to create a healthy, inspiring and efficient work environment and actively shape the next generation of office buildings.

How do we do it?

With the help of a machine learning algorithm we create individual and visually attractive plant designs that measurably improve indoor air quality. The smart plants make employees healthier and reduce energy consumption in a natural way.

Environmental Commitment

Our approach to improve the environment


tons of CO2 we have saved to date.

2 for 1

For every plant we bring into your office, we plant two trees in endangered rainforest regions. In this way, we are able to transfer the positive effects of our plants to outdoor nature, thus helping the environment.

Net positive

In order to increase environmental awareness within our own organization, we plant enough trees every year to compensate for our employees' emissions. In this way we improve their personal ecological footprint.
