The Journey

Gartenzwerg asked Realise to create a highly functional indoor hyrdoponic garden in a rustic, user-friendly design.

Our integrated user-centred design + engineering produced a modular system that allows for bespoke configuration that is both high-tech and user-friendly for any small space.

The Result? A production ready design and fully functioning prototype that has helped Gartenzwerg secure further investment and received rave reviews from industry-leading experts.

The Design Challenge

To design a smart hydroponic garden that enables the user to grow plants automatically and efficiently. Gartenzwerg asked us to focus on packaging their high-tech functionality into a rustic, user-friendly design.

We were tasked with redesigning two similar but separate variants of the garden – so modularity was considered throughout the entire design process.

Our Design Solutions

To meet cost targets the product was designed to be lightweight and flat pack-able; yet simple to assemble with minimal tools.

An elegant method of altering the height of the LED lights was also required; along with integrating various sensors monitoring temperature, humidity, light, PH and the water level.

The Delivery

A complete, production ready design for a modular hydroponic system that incorporates a range of technologies making growing food 3x faster using 90% less water than traditional growing.
