Cyclic Growth Base

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2020

In northwestern China, many ecosystems have been seriously damaged by mining, resulting in problems such as poor soil structure, lack of organic matter, and water and soil erosion. In order to ensure the ecological reclamation of mined lands, Cyclic Growth Base provides plants with the necessary water and nutrients in harsh environments. Six plants are clustered to form a stable triangular structure with a water-gathering base to ensure their survival. This deice can act as a first step in restoring the ecological vitality of the soil.

We are so honored to receive an iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD. It's a huge incentive for us to carry on designing in the hope that our efforts will lead to positive economic, social, and ecological change. Thank you very much to our tutor and to everyone at IF DESIGN!
