The Wilting Flower prototype is the brainchild of British designer, Carl Smith, who is keen to raise awareness about reducing home energy consumption.

The flower-shaped device presents people with a visible reminder of how much energy is being used at any given time.

When low amounts of energy are being used, the flower will be vibrant, upright and blooming; turn on more appliances, and the flower wilts.

Smith hopes that the unique flower-shaped design, which sets this device apart from similar products on the market, will change people’s energy consumption habits by tapping into people’s inate nurturing qualities, which will see them strive to keep the flower in bloom.
