Babylon by Elias Monzón

Lund University student Elias Monzón created Babylon to tackle a common problem that affect plants in the office: dehydration. Plants are used in offices to improve air quality and uplift mood but are frequently neglected by busy workers who have no time or responsibility to water them. Babylon is a two-part pot in earthenware composed of a funnel and a 3 consecutive pots hanging from a rope. By pouring water into the funnel you irrigate all pots in one go. Water flows into an inner chamber which gradually transfers out to the soil in the pot.

The project is part of Lund University initiative In Our Office and was exhibited at this years Ventura Lambrate in April and at DMY Berlin Kraftverk in June.
