Inspiring iconic products that are an intersection of art,
technology & minimalistic design.
Set your plants free.
Designed in Sweden by our talented team, in line with Nordic elegance and minimalism. LYFE consists of a planter that hovers over an oak base via magnetic levitation, gently rotating during suspension.
The magnetic field of the earth has powerful effects on all life forms, especially plants. We’ve been investigating the effects of magnetism on plants as 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.
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 shades of light as it gracefully rotates, creating a mesmerizing effect.
Whatever mood you are in and whatever shade you desire, you can find a matching skin for your Lyfe in our shop. Imagine your planter saturated in exciting hues, interacting with wild flowers and plants of your choice.
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 or office. Watch your plant twirl in the air, and experience it from different angles.
To mitigate against over-watering, a cleverly designed drainage system allows water to escape to a hidden inner reservoir.
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.
In LYFE there is no mechanism controlling the spin, which leaves the planter to spin in whichever direction it chooses. Because there is no friction, besides air friction, the units tend to rotate freely. Rotation can be induced depending on what plant you have inside.
Although we are unable to guarantee the rotation of the units at this point in time, it does not take away the beneficial effect LYFE has on plants.
