Elevate both your décor and your life. Lyfe is a zero-gravity growing system that allows you to cultivate your favorite plants in mid-air, with 360 degrees of sunlight exposure, 365 days a year. Lyfe consists of a planter that hovers over an oak base via magnetic levitation. It is 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.

Lyfe uses maglev technology. Identified by the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus, Air Plants (Tillandsia) are, as their name indicates, 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. Studies have shown that magnetic fields accelerate the ripening of certain fruits, enhancing your plant’s metabolism.

Lyfe is designed in Sweden by a talented team in line with Nordic elegance and minimalism. Winters in Sweden are long and dark, and this product maximizes light and life. The geodesic form reflects several different shade of light as it gracefully rotates, creating a mesmerizing effect.

The 12-sided geodesic planter is molded from silicone, 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. To mitigate against over-watering, a cleverly designed drainage system allows water to escape to a hidden, inner reservoir.

The Lyfe Magnet is where the magic happens. The custom-shaped Lyfe magnet pushes up against an electromagnetic base, causing the planter to levitate in mid-air, lifting your Lyfe to new dimensions.
