Gorgeous Minimalist Planters Grow Refreshing Greens While Floating In Mid-Air
By Yoon Sann Wong, 07 Jun 2016
Engineer Simon Morris, who previously launched the futuristic levitating light bulb called ‘Flyte’, is back with a new zero-gravity lifestyle product called ‘LYFE’.
The system, which comprises a planter that rotates above an oak base via magnetic levitation, works especially well with air plants.
Unlike conventional greens that absorb nutrients through their roots, air plants take in the necessary nutrients from airborne particles via their leaves.
The system’s Maglev technology enables the 12-sided geodesic container to rotate 360 degrees, showering the plant with even exposure to the sun.
‘LYFE’ has been launched on Kickstarter where its fundraising campaign has already surpassed its US$80,000 goal. At time of writing, close to US$119,000 has been raised, with 24 days remaining on the campaign clock.
Watch the video below to learn more about ‘LYFE’ and discover more details on its Kickstarter page.
