Most people like to go to the nature when they are on vacation. Maybe go hiking, go camping or go for a picnic. Let their eyes fill with the whole green scene, smell the mixed flavor about sunlight, grass and earth, and feel comfortable all over the body. But this is because people's lives are imprisoned in the lifeless buildings, so I hope to bring more greenery back to home and turn into the center of everyday life.
“Why are those small potted plants can only be decorated in the corner at home?” So I want to create an exclusive space for them at home, pull them back to the center of life. Combine furniture and botanic to create an oasis in a cement environment.
The central funnel of the glass table top is the water outlet, and the water can be irrigated down to the soil by the central pipe.
The water required by the plant is poured from the center of the table top, and the funnel flows down the pipe to the soil, helping the plants to replenish moisture through the capillary principle between the soils.
An LED strip is placed in the center of the planting area, and a built-in time switch illuminates the plant to provide proper light to live. And it can also be used as a situational light at night.
The plants in the table are naturally drooping like a beautiful tablecloth, lying there quietly to accompany with you,and allowing "natural" could "naturally" integration into the atmosphere of the home.
The main body is dark gray, with a slightly green reflective glass on the top as the tabletop, hoping to highlight the green color of the plant.
OASIS is both botanic and furniture. By redefining the relationship between "natural" and "artificial objects", potted plants are no longer corner decorations but a new statement of "the coexistence of furniture and nature " in the interior.
Excess water can pass through the hole and flow along the central pipe to the lower collecting pan and return to the atmosphere through natural evaporation.
You can brewing a pot of tea with some poetry, laying on the sofa and enjoy your afternoon.
