LYFE is a zero-gravity growing system allowing you to cultivate your favorite plants in the air.

LYFE consists of a planter that hovers over an oak base via magnetic levitation. Designed to gently rotate during suspension, LYFE nourishes life with 360 degrees of sunlight exposure, 365 days a year.

With LYFE, we’ve set your plants free.

The rotation especially benefits Air Plants, as nutrients are absorbed by their leaves through the air, rather than the conventional root system.

The magnetic field of the earth has powerful effects on all life forms, especially plants. For over a year, we’ve been investigating the effects of magnetism on plants. LYFE uses maglev technology.

Studies have show that magnetic fields accelerate the ripening of certain fruits, enhancing your plant’s metabolism.

Identified by the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus, Air Plants (Tillandsia) are plants that grow in the air.

Air plants thrive upon the circulation of airborne particles; with no soil required, our gravity-defying and rotating microclimate naturally nurtures.
