It is important to find out the most suitable plants for the different home areas; therefore, I try to study the environment and find out the space opportunities for plants.
After the research, I started to think of different ideas and I chose three directions to develop my products:
• Hydroponic on wall
I considered that users might want the product to be more flexible; therefore, I come up with an idea that can transform into light or wall hydroponic.
After confirming the design direction, I start drawing and testing my design. I would like to design a curvey shape product to match the plant, so I chose triplet to be my design inspiration.
The core of the Tuplant is a shell. It can transform into different home products using different parts.
It can transform into three different products:
