Designed by Nur Yıldırım for the kitchens of the future, planTree is a hydroponic based system that allows homes to grow organic food from seed. The system uses automatic water and nutrition circulation to reduce the need for maintenance and plant care, and vertically combined modules provide space efficiency and flexibility. A simple interface also lets users set up values such as pH, moisture and light for optimum growing. By allowing people to grow the vegetables and greens at home, planTree promotes a greener lifestyle while contributing to the health of living spaces. planTree was honored in International Design Awards 2011 with Silver Award in Kitchen Appliances Student Category.
