Self-watering flowerpot

Credit: Tools Design, Denmark

Client: EVA DENMARK A/S, Denmark

This self-watering flowerpot assures plant lovers that their plants won’t die when they are on vacation or busy with their hectic lives. The design is aesthetic as well as functional. A wick is placed in the holes of a ceramic flowerpot. The plant is placed in the pot, which is then placed on top of a glass container filled with water. The wick dangles into the container and the plant can then take up the necessary amount of water through the wick. The glass container holds enough water for a week, on average. The design gives the user simple, straightforward feedback. One glance at the water lever will tell you if more water is needed.
