Sustain-A-Stack

Strengthening the relationship between people and the environment by merging urban and natural spaces.

Where space can often dictate the presence of nature in the home setting, "Sustain-a-Stack" positions nature as a focal point in living spaces without compromising the value of a person's space. "Sustain-a-Stack" also enhances the relationship between the consumer and his/her natural environment by both physical and digital indications of plant growth.

"Sustain-a-Stack", a mini indoor greenhouse that makes the practice of plant growing and maintenance quick, convenient, and user-friendly.
