This indoor plant with a self-sustaining digital clock definitely creates a new era in home-decor design.

It’s always a pleasure to find eco-friendly innovative products, such as concepts like this design by Francesco Castiglione Morelli & Tommaso Ceschi. They used recycled plastic and formed a modern looking pot in which you can plant flowers, grass or herbs.

The plants help to absorb CO2 from the air and produce oxygen. When metal and mud come in contact, they create a chemical reaction which becomes an instant power supply for the clock! 

The Timeless Garden, mud-clock concept creates a new kind of energy, without a need for electric power supply, or batteries. A main motivation of the designers was to find a natural concept to preserve our planet.
