Concept Brief

I saw it when I visited SF MOMA, and it was beautiful. I wished that I want that living wall inside of my room. Suddenly, I got an idea of small IoT pot and started the sketch. I got inspiration from the beehive and when I combined each product, it will become one big wall.

Target Audience

My target audience is people (age between 25 to 65) who has middle-level incomes and who struggle with growing plants.
