Inhale Sweden, Exhale London – live indoor forest brings balance to stressed city


With one in 20 Brits wanting to live in Sweden and more than one third (38%) envying the balanced Swedish ‘Lagom’ lifestyle, Lindahls Kvarg opens the Skogscafe (Forest Café) in Leicester Square. The space comes complete with purified air –  close to 80% cleaner than the air outside the venue – in a specially curated Forest Room to match the Swedish countryside

The Lindahls Skogscafé features real Swedish trees, scents and immersive sounds plus purified air, which has been treated by experts to match the clean air found in the forests of Sweden. The café is designed to bring the Swedish outdoors in to help Londoners take a moment out of their day, connect with nature and regain some balance in their busy urban lives.

Lindahls has partnered with air quality experts, to create the space – the air measured on the 22ndOctober at 07:55:00 showed a significant reduction in ultrafine traffic related particulates  and gases compared to the air inside the café. The data that was measured includes, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, formaldehyde, nitrogen dioxide, relative humidity, temperature and particulate to indicate mould spores, pollens, bacteria, and viruses.

By using real living trees and purifying the air the café offers stressed out Londoners the chance to spend some time in nature which can have a positive impact on general wellbeing.

Lindahls Skogscafé can be found at The White Space (5 Great Newport Street, WC2H 7JB) and will be free to visit for today only, with limited walk-ins allowed. Whilst there, guests will be able to immerse themselves in the Swedish Forest Room, take part in a relaxing yoga session and smoothie bowl masterclass, trial new Nestlé Lindahls Kvarg products and take part in the #LiveLikeASwede competition where entrants will be in with the chance of winning a trip to Sweden.
