If plants are freed from the constraints of gravity, will they grow differently ?

LYFE is a zero-gravity growing system, allowing you to cultivate your favorite plants in mid-air.
LYFE consists of a rotating planter that hovers over an oak base, suspended via magnetic levitation. Best suitable for Air Plants, LYFE provides a way to display your house plants in style.

Identified by the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus, Air Plants 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. House Air Plants in our LYFE planters and bring the magic of levitation home.

Many studies have shown that magnetic fields accelerate the ripening of certain fruits and change the mitochondria in cells that enhance your plant's metabolism. The magnetic field of the Earth has powerful effects on all life forms, especially plants. LYFE isolates and concentrates magnetic poles allowing you to suspend your plants on a cushion of air.

Designed to gently rotate during suspension, LYFE nourishes life with 360 degrees of sunlight exposure, 365 days a year.

According to the NASA clean air study, placing 1 plant for every 100 sq. ft / 9 square meters in an office or home increases air quality, filters toxins and decreases stress levels. With LYFE, transform your home into a garden of free floating life forms.
A conversational piece that will impress your friends, and make heads turn.

Since the very beginning of our first product one year ago, FLYTE - the world's first levitating light - we've been busy at the lab, researching and iterating new concepts, as well as pushing the limits of what is possible with plants.
