What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

So, what is Plantashelf? 

Plantashelf is the first modular shelving system that allows us to create our own hanging gardens indoors. Is an exciting, yet deceptively simple creation. We set ourselves the challenge of creating a functional, stylish product which helps to improve quality of life, help our planet, and looks elegant whilst doing it.  

How does it work?

By combining minimal design and green life, we bring you a product suitable for every environment without the hassle of a traditional garden.

It's modular system allows us to flip it and arrange it in different combinations all along the wall while it's translucent front will grant you a view of your plant's growth and water dosage from the very first sprout. Once the first one is in place, you can configure the rest by just simply sliding them side by side or combining them independently. 

By simply hanging it on a well illuminated wall, you can grow all sorts of plants. Just fill up each planter with soil, seeds, water, and watch it grow!  

Is it easy to use and clean?

Couldn't be simpler!

Plantashelf units are made of resilient and lightweight ABS with a minimal design and irregular silhouette that brings a breeze of fresh air and greenery into our houses.

Each unit is composed of two planters each side which are designed to be easy to use, clean and replace when needed, being able to grow inside from colourful flowers to hanging ivy or even some small vegetables.

The planters also include a drainage system which drains any water left into an underneath cubicle, working at the same time as a secondary water deposit. When this one is full, by simply lifting one of the front glass panels and putting a container underneath, you can easily pour any water left in it

Improve your health & environment

NASA studies prove that, along with increasing air quality, plants in a home or office environment can act as mood and productivity boosters. Taking a love of all things green to stylish new heights, the clever Plantashelf product offers a new twist on the traditional potted plant. It uses a simple-yet-versatile shelf design to bring the outdoors back indoors with no mess, no spillage and no unsightly plant pot caddies required.

Can I grow any sorts of plants? 

We carefully designed Plantashelf so it is not only suitable just for decorative and environmental purposes but to allow users to be able to cultivate even small vegetables.

The depth of each planter is around (10cm / 4'') Which allows the user to cultivate some sort of short root vegetables. Having plantashelf near a kitchen is great for some natural extra ingredients! 

Our goal

Plantashelf was conceived as a natural way of recovering the lack of green spaces in our societies and improving environment at the same time. Our aim is to make the world a bit greener and improve everyone's health and environment wherever Plantashelf goes.

We cannot do it alone however, that is why we need you to make it possible and help us recover a bit of the greenery we have left behind. 

Your support is crucial and we hope that together we will be able to make the world a bit greener!

Risks and challenges

We designed Plantashelf to be produced in small batches at first by our experienced manufacturers and the time of manufacturing and delivery is estimated accordingly to a specific number of units produced.

If we largely exceed that first batch of units, the manufacturing process and therefore delivery times might increase as well. However, if that occurs, we are prepared to reduce that additional time as much as possible and deal with any extra costs so our backers receive their Plantashelf units succesfully.

If for any other reason the production could not be completed, the money will be entirely refunded to the backers.
