Dew is a water harvester leaf made of an aluminum body with ice gel inside that uses Aluminum’s heat transfer properties to condense water from the air on its surface and pours it into the soil to aid watering our indoor small plants. Put it inside the freezer so it lowers down its temperature and then take it out. As it’s colder than the ambient temperature, water in the air starts condensing on its surface and then slides down and into the soil.
Taking care of our plants consumes an important amount of drinkable water in most cases. By implementing biomimicry inspired in the Namib Beetle, it has little rigs on its surface that help collect the water and generate big drops that can finally irrigate the plant without needing any added amount of water, making DEW efficient and sustainable. Also by blending this natural technology with Second-life aluminum, an artificial material, it helps to breed life!
Home gardening and environmental awareness have gain major relevance within our daily lives, that’s why when you take your Dew out the freezer you “plant” the leaf in the soil, recreating the action of planting as a symbolic reminder of the importance of your actions in taking care of the environment .
In addition, the task of watering the plants has been almost the same for ages, but with this enhanced experience you’re not only being more conscious but modern and elegant!
