Ferris Wheel Planter

Still fascinated by the idea of movement, I looked into the “green wheel” by Milan design studio DesignLibero , inspired by a NASA space-saving indoor planter design that was never realized.

“the object composed of outer solid surface case that hides an engine which rotates the plants, a water reservoir and a pump for automatic plant irrigation. Vases and cover vases are placed in the perforated inner wheel. Each vase contains coco fiber, which provides perfect support for the plant and its roots. Simple and intuitive control interface can be managed through the smartphone or tablet by using an easy application. This application admits to control the amount of illumination, temperature of the light and to be advised of water level.”
