PLANTS IN SPACE

We've moved on from pigs in space – now it's plants in space!

PLANT is a concept developed in collaboration between designers Piotr Szpryngwald and Mirko Ihrig,with experts and astronauts from NASA. It enables the astronauts to grow food on long duration space flights in a clean, easy and safe way.

The concept consists of a small pillow which contains the seed and hydroponic media, a special watering device which can both puncture and activate the pillow, and a growing chamber which informs astronauts about the harvesting cycles of their plants.
