Concept

Leaft is a system of little gardens that can be share between people that live in the same building. The aim is to create new relationships between joint owners, by sharing growing plants usefull during different domestic attivities. The gardens are indipendent and can be “call� to each floor by pulling down a little the cables. Each person can use each garden only once a day.

Modularity Technology

the shell on the top protects the plant in case of snow or strong wind

an electric motor moves leaft Leaft uses weather rss to know if it will cold temperature or strong wind Leaft “drinks” from the canale using some filters on the bottom the jar includes arduino, sensors and all circuits there’re temperature, moisture and light sensors
