The Wise Planter – Geometric

An OpenFab original! The Wise Planter is a post-smart planter. No gadgets, no sensors, no batteries. Basic physics lets you visually assess the needs of your favorite desktop plants.

The inner pot sits on a high quality spring which rests against the outer base. As the soil loses moisture, the pot slowly rises while the base remains in place. This is a variation of the original Wise Planter. Intersecting geometry provides a window through the base that exposes the pot inside. Instead of an adjustable trigger, there’s a color change on the pot. When you water — more blue is exposed. Gradually blue is lost, visually representing the loss of water.

You can review the design process of the Wise Planter on the blog. Here’s the first post. The Wise Planter is available for purchase on Etsy.
