DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
World Garden

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Grow food indoors and outdoors.

INSPIRATION:
As a company, we want to give the power of food-growing and self sustainability to people who don't necessarily have a large yard to grow vegetables. Vegetables and nutritious eating are at the core of living a happy, healthy life.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This aesthetic indoor / outdoor garden helps people grow food for themselves regardless of where they live in the world. Features grow lights, expandable design, digital programmable timer and even braille coordinates built into the mould for universal garden planning. Overflow reservoir, grow trellis included as well as rubber castors for moveability. Created with BPA-free polymer.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The product is designed to aesthetically fit perfectly inside your living space, or outdoor patio. Integrating food growing right into your personal lifestyle.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project began in February of 2015, and first production samples were seen in February of 2017.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Injection molded self watering garden, using BPA-free ABS, and PP polymers. Self watering design waters from roots up.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
One of the features we are most proud of aside of the aesthetics, is the integrated braille coordinates. A person with limited sight can plant herbs - say Basil in coordinate A-3, and Oregano in B1 - perform their whole garden planning right through coordinates.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The United Nations states that by 2050, about 66% of the world's population will be urbanized. Currently about 82% in North America live in urban environments, and about 73% in Europe. This means less space for everyone. We also recognize the need and fast moving trend of creating sustainability by growing your own food at home. We wanted to provide an opportunity for Urban Environments to enjoy the therapy and health benefits of growing food at home. We realize the importance, the benefits and the freedom that comes from this. This is why at Vita we say: The World Needs Vegetables!

CHALLENGE:
The challenge to this design was to create something both aesthetic, and completely functional / expandable. Something that could easily and subtly fit inside one's living space. A huge financial commitment took place, as the molds and tooling was extremely expensive. We had many changes an updates to make the product more improved in many ways.
