Romotow Mobile Living Unit has been designed for today’s savvy generation by W2, a New Zealand based architectural design company. The innovative design takes different approach by leaving boxy and cumbersome travel trailer, it brings a new concept in mobile living. Motor caravan is an increasingly popular alternative lifestyle that makes it one of fastest growing domestic tourism sectors, thus, resulting in great improvements in both caravan quality and campsite facilities.
Joining this rapidly increasing market, W2 has come up with Romotow, a patented innovation caravan that promises you stress-free, spacious and comfortable place for your outdoor adventures. The main feature of this concept lies in the living area where it extends out from its sheltered exterior up to 70-percent more space area you can enjoy through automated swivel design.
Young and old, both would enjoy this modern stylish mobile living space. The aerodynamic and lightweight construction helps to increase fuel-efficiency as well as towing stability. Romotow Mobile Living Unit is not just a simple caravan but can also be used as a mobile café, an outdoor office or a weekend escape.
The concept is very simple. Koishi planter pot monitors the activity within a plant and transforms it into an audio-visual improvisational performance. We can’t talk to plants but interacting is different. It’s nice to put a plant in the limelight for a change. The music played through the pot is produced instantaneously. It’s more than just a pot, it’s an instrument; controlled by your plant – imagine cooking to the sound of your basil plant in your kitchen.
We interact with one another on a daily basis, we interact with animals, and we spend hours playing Angry Birds on our smart phones; interacting with electronics. Can you see where this is going? In 2012 it’s considered normal to spend hours playing, but interacting with a plant is probably considered as being weird. Koishi Planter Pot tackles this issue, and promotes having plants indoors.
Having plants in your house can improve indoor air quality, they stabilize humidity level and also act as beautiful home decor.
Koishi Planter Pot concept changes the perspective of plants from a piece of furniture to being a plant that gives back too. This concept provides amazing calming effect, ideal for meditation. It’s very easy to use, everyone can use it – no knobs or anything. Just place the plant on the enclosure and sit back. Koishi Planter Pot makes music like no other – always unique. Composed and instantaneously… by a plant!
