Rome’s Resurgence by H2O

What could the rest of the world do with these sorts of water dispensers? Live in joy! Designer Michael Tomlin has a key to jam into your ground, world. It’s called “Cascade” and it’s a magnificent water fountain.

One Pot, Two Lives

One Pot, Two Lives

No drugs! Only fishes and plants. Not weed! Thought I bet it’d be extra cool if-no! This is a planter and a fishtank. You put your regularly potted plant in this pot on top, and a goldfish on the bottom. What could they provide for eachother, you might ask? Waste! Yes, the fishes turn their eaten bait remnants into nutrients for the plant, while the water fed to the plant is filtered as it passes though and becomes clean for the fish. It is a totally natural and lovely system.

Dis is no Chicken Egg

Dis is no Chicken Egg

Let’s get to planting for a moment here, yes? Let’s discuss how this design called the “EggPot” really works. It’s all about humidification. Humidity? Yes. The way the egg sits in the pot there, it collects. Collects the sweat of the world through the natural processes of Mother Nature. And you don’t even have to work out to make it get fed! Come with me, fellow designers, and crack this egg on your mind grapes so we can make jelly.

The Business Of Re-potting Plants

The Business Of Re-potting Plants

I’m not so updated with the green business, but I’m sure folks who have an active green thumb understand the nuances of “Re-potting a Plant” and the burden that comes with proper transfer of plants from one pot to the other. Re-flowerpot looks at doing away with the heartbreak of losing a sapling due to its incorrect transfer. The pot simply breaks-up into two parts, kinda like a mold for your soil and plant. Happy Re-potting to you!

Water In Thin Air

Water In Thin Air

We all know about water vapor, and its laws for condensation. Applying this law to the “Dew Drop”, we have a device that is capable of extracting water from the air, condensing it and utilizing it for watering plants. All you need to do is insert the artificial leaf into the soil, plug it on and wait for stuff to happen!

Do Not Shake Vase

Do Not Shake Vase

We’ve had our share of vase concepts here on Yanko Design, and this is definitely one of them. It’s strikingly similar to a previous “framed vase” design we published some months ago, but it’s unique in it’s shape and execution. The line holding the frame is a wire, the wire bone’s connected to the light bone, and the light shines on the plant. Super cute.

25 Homeopathic Years of Brita

25 Homeopathic Years of Brita

Designer Julien Hadley had the task of branding a gesture marking 25 years of Brita water filters. Hadley chose the phrase “We’ve Got a Plan” to note Brita’s aim to promote a more sustainable approach to consumerism and how people use products. Environmental responsibility! Along with that is this lovely plant plan: “My-oan” – a platform that enables users to grow homeopathic plants on their own, in their own home.

Raking Up Some Fun

Raking Up Some Fun

Fall’s almost here and the lawn looks pretty dandy with all the leaves falling. I don’t break a sweat coz it’s not my part of the chores, but I do feel for my husband who has to do all the raking. Here’s where concepts like Power Rake can come handy. Unlike the traditional comb-n-handle ones, this one features a conveyer belt system with well-spaced teeth and a sack to catch the booty. Powered by the kinetic motion of the front wheel, the rake glides over the grass and devours all the mess.

Free Me, Oh My Green Table!

Free Me, Oh My Green Table!

Look at this lovely table you see here, then let me introduce you to the plants it’s got growing on it. Tillandsias, also known as Air Plants grow without soil, feeding instead on the moisture it finds in the air (dust, decaying leaves and insect matter). These plants rely on a host structure for support, but don’t worry, the table wasn’t alive to begin with.*

Coffee Cup Plant

Coffee Cup Plant

Y in Cup is a project that has good intentions. It wants you to re-use your disposable coffee cup (yes the Starbucks variety) to grow more plants. I mean tiny plants that can dot your home, office or wherever. A combo of seed and fertilizer disk comes attached to the bottom of the Y Cup; simply tear open the package and empty the contents in the rinsed out cup. Add some soil from your backyard and you’re good to go.

Bottling Water With A Surprise

Bottling Water With A Surprise

Did you know 77% of the world’s plastic bottles end up in landfills? That amounts to tens of metric tons of waste every  year. If recycling isn’t the only answer, maybe we need to think of  new ways to extend the lives of these bottles. Seeds in the Bottle is a project by designer Yun Hwan Sung with a little surprise in each package. Tiny herb seeds are stored inside a pocket you release into the bottle when you’re done with it. Invert the bottle, fill with potting mix, water and instead of filling up landfills, you have an herb garden.

Decorating The Roof

Decorating The Roof

Our roofs are oft left neglected coz most of us don’t have green thumbs to transform them into roof gardens. If the inclination is there, then these modular pots called Natural Protector can come in quite handy. What they do is they open up on all four sides to form a waterproof layout-base for growing plants. A network of these opened-up pots on your rooftop plus a couple of fancy seedlings, and you’re good to go.
