LYFE consists of a planter that hovers over an oak base via magnetic levitation. Designed to gently rotate during suspension. 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.
Lyfe & Air Plants
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.
Designed in Sweden by our talented team in line with Nordic elegance and minimalism.
Studies have shown that the plants surrounded with a magnetic field tend to grow faster, taller, bigger, and healthier, as measured by the plant height, leaf size, and selected parameters related to their health status.
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.
LYFE is the second creation of the FLYTE brand.
