Be mesmerized as the geodesic form rotates gracefully through a range of light and shade. The rotation especially benefits Air Plants, as nutrients are absorbed by their leaves through the air, rather than the conventional root system.
The magnetic field of the earth has powerful effects on all life forms, especially plants. For over a year, the creators of LYFE have been investigating the effects of magnetism on plants. LYFE uses maglev technology. Studies have show that magnetic fields accelerate the ripening of certain fruits, enhancing your plant’s metabolism.
What are Air Plants?
Identified by the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus, Air Plants (Tillandsia) are plants that grow in the air. Air plants thrive upon the circulation of airborne particles; with no soil required, the gravity-defying and rotating microclimate naturally nurtures. LYFE is a conversation piece that makes Magneto jealous.
Plants require sunlight, and LYFE planters are designed to rotate in mid-air, allowing an even distribution on sunlight on all parts of the plants. According to the NASA clean air study, placing 1 plant for every 100 sq. ft / 9 square meters in an office or home increases air quality, filters toxins and decreases stress levels.
1. LYFE Planter: The 12-sided geodesic planter is molded from silicon, making it grippy and tactile. As it rotates in mid-air, different shades appear, providing a hypnotic and relaxing experience for your home or office. Watch your plant twirl in the air, and experience it from different angles.
2. LYFE Reservoir
To mitigate against over-watering, a cleverly designed drainage system allows water to escape to a hidden, inner reservoir.
3. LYFE Magnet
This is where the magic happens. The custom shaped LYFE magnet pushes up against an electromagnetic base, causing the planter to levitate in mid-air, lifting your LYFE to new dimensions.

The tricky part is when trying to balance the planter in the air but the result is fabulous 🙂
