I discovered this product on Yanko Design which relates to the my project is designing (finished in a few weeks so I’ll post it when finished). Whilst most of these ideas on the website: http://www.yankodesign.com/ are just the concepts , the ideas behind them are impressive and innovative.

This designers are David Sweeney, Jeff Virangkabutra & Michael Korn and they’ve made this product, Water Me When I Tilt.
What does it do?
-When water is poured the vase rises up and stays there.
-When the flower has absorbed the water, the design makes the vase tilt back down.
The vase symbolises what a flower does when treated with water and the simplicity of the design makes it and eye-catching product and something worth considering to put into commercial use. It’s a good reminder to the user of this product to water their plants as they are often forgotten about and left to wilt and dry out.
