releaf

Created by the swiss design team FULGURO (Cédric Decroux and Yves Fidalgo) the reLEAF is made from a thermo lacquered aluminum sheet which has been folded to resemble a leaf. The shape aids in the collection of rain water that’s delivered directly to the roots thanks to the funnel-shaped stem. While using it on a plant might seem a bit odd, the reLEAF can also just be stuck in a bucket for the same purpose of collecting extra rain water. If only they made it hydrophilic so it could also attract watervapor and let it condens on its surface.
