The Livesglass is made to be a self-sustaining biome that also cleans the air around it

The biggest challenge people face with indoor plants is the upkeep. While watering a few plants seems so easy, remembering to do that isn’t as simple. The Livesglass is an interesting system that uses gravity to consistently provide hydration to indoor plants. An exquisite design doesn’t hurt either.

Fitting perfectly in place on the base is an hourglass-shaped display case. This structure isn’t just for the looks, though. It’s an automated watering system where owners can fill up the top with water and a specially-designed nozzle at the bottom regularly drips water to the plant. As long as there is water on top, the plant inside is never parched. The system works exactly like an hourglass. To accommodate a wide variety of hydration needs, the creators will include interchangeable nozzles.

The Livesglass also impacts indoor quality and its a perfect addition to any home or office. Two vents on the glass casing allow air to flow freely from within the system. In the process of photosynthesis, plants turn carbon monoxide into oxygen. With enough of these Livesglass plants, you can make indoor air oxygen-rich.

For the final version of the Livesglass, the plain cylindrical display case has been separated from the hourglass-shaped one. This lets owners display taller plants and it makes the auto-watering system optional. Without the hourglass, the pocket-sized display can house a plant up to 7 inches tall. Moss and succulent plants are ideal for the set-up.

For those interested in the beautiful piece, a set maybe ordered for $40 over at Kickstarter. Product designer Jonathan Che is behind the Livesglass. He is a Red Dot Design Winner and based in Sydney, Australia.

PSFK has seen a handful of interesting indoor treatments. Here’s an indoor gardening system as modular as LEGOs and vertical farming for living spaces.
