The 'Biome System' is a levitating potted plant that provides opportunities for inhabitants of urban apartments to surround their spaces with lush greenery.

The benefits of at-home botany are undeniable, however most urban spaces don't offer the direct access to sunlight, space and climate that're required for vegetation to thrive. Unlike traditional potted plants, this system demands attention, gently reminding the consumer of what it needs, and when. The sculptural pod communicates its need for water through displaying a red light. Through an accompanied smartphone app, users can trigger the attached water source, providing hands-free hydration within a matter of seconds.

The user-friendly system ensures everyone has an equal opportunity to experience plant life, while encouraging environmental interaction.
