Fresh herbs belong in every kitchen. They are delicious, healthy and give every dish that special something. But even herbs that still look fresh and green when bought wither in the own kitchen after a few days. An innovative irrigation method uses the power of mist to help cut-herbs grow new roots. Through this lasting freshness, Cloud.Biome makes herbs suitable for everyday use. The technical complexity fades into the background while the elegant interaction design invites to use the herbs. From inserting the plants to cleaning and refilling water, each step is purposefully engineered. The transparent water vessel allows the fill level to be seen while fascinating reflections play on the table surface. When planting, the user becomes the designer of his own herb variety. Through the symbiosis of technology, nature and human, Cloud.Biome brings the ambience of fresh herbs into every kitchen.
