The Natural Balance is a flowerpot that contains a water reservoir, that feeds the plant gradually throughout the weeks. When the reservoir is empty, the pot tips over, to let you know that a refill is needed. The flowerpot returns to its upright position when the reservoir is refilled.
The pot and the reservoir are divided by a water-permeable part, made from earthenware. This slowly transfer the water into the soil and let is last for up to 28 days, depending on the plant. To fit any plant with different weight and shape, the pivoting point is adjustable by a magnetic slider.
Studio Lorier designed it as an easy to use and analog solution that does not rely any apps or electronics. The Natural Balance is designed for people who are tired of watering plants on a daily basis, don’t know how much water a plant needs. Even let the plant survive any long vacation.
All the parts from the Natural Balance are carefully handcrafted by Studio Lorier, based in the Netherlands. Available in Cool Grey, Mint Green, and Pastel Pink.
The design of the Natural Balance is finished, and now ready to be produced on a large scale. To get production running, Studio Lorier needs to upscale their operation and invest in a larger kiln, molds and materials. Backers of the campaign get early access at the lowest price, and will be the first to receive The Natural Balance flowerpot.
