About this project
LYFE is a zero-gravity growing system allowing you to cultivate your favorite plants in the air.
LYFE consists of a planter that hovers over an oak base via magnetic levitation. Designed to gently rotate during suspension, LYFE nourishes life with 360 degrees of sunlight exposure, 365 days a year.
With LYFE, we've set your plants free.
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, we've 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.
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, our gravity-defying and rotating microclimate naturally nurtures.
LYFE is a conversation piece that makes Magneto jealous.
Plants require sunlight and our 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.
The product development team from Flyte carefully engineered the planter to allow for drainage to mitigate against over-watering and maximise airflow.
Designed in Sweden by our talented team in line with Nordic elegance and minimalism.
In Sweden, where winters are long and dark, we have crafted a product that maximizes light and life, proud to be the centre piece of a well designed home.
The geodesic form reflects several different shade of light as it gracefully rotates, creating a mesmerizing effect.
1. LYFE Planter Our 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 of 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. Our custom shaped LYFE magnet pushes up against an electromagnetic base, causing the planter to levitate in mid-air, lifting your LYFE to new dimensions.
Base Dimensions: 153mm x 153mm x 38mm ( 6 inches x 6 inches x 1.5 inches )
Base Weight : 1.300 grams ( 45.8 ounces )
Pot Dimensions: 80 x 100 mm
Pot Weight: 240 grams ( 8.5 ounces )
AC Adapter: Input 100-240V - 50/60Hz; Output 15V 1A
Risks and challenges
One year on from the successful launch of Flyte - the world’s first levitating light - our team is well positioned to introduce LYFE as the next member of our floating family.
We have established a solid relationship with our manufacturer, holding confidence in their ability to provide a product to the same high standards we have become accustomed to with Flyte.
Proven logistical procedures will be implemented to expedite your product in the most efficient way.
From a risk perspective, introducing two new suppliers for the Air Plants in Europe and the USA means building new relationships. The partners we have selected are industry leaders and we have full faith in their ability to deliver, however as with any new relationship, this bears a moderate risk.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
