JA-RUD / Smart lighting plant pot


The pot is made from recycled packaging wastes. The design was inspired by the Benjarong porcelain, a traditional Thai pottery. This product combines this ancient style of pottery with a modern design making it appealing to both old and young generations. The second part is the smart lighting designed for indoor plants. As the different colors in the light spectrum support plant growth in various ways, this smart light system can automatically adjust the color and intensity of the light according to a plants’ environment. Moreover, the device will automatically stop emitting light when plants receives adequate light each day.
