Grow Conscious is a concept shower that makes the user aware of water wastage during the showering process and in turn recycles the used water through a sponge filter at its base.
Using inspiration from a growing plant, the shower lifts itself up due to heat and piezoelectricity created from water pressure. The tube of the shower is designed with small piezoelectric hairs so that the water pressure creates a piezoelectric charge that activates the nitinol (shape memory alloy) tubes to rise and stiffen. Once the shower is turned off, the shower shrinks back into its original state due to fall of water pressure and temperature.
