IKEA develops home vertical farms13.10.2017
IKEA unveiled its new concept – vertical hydroponic farms to grow vegetables at home, Lokal. This farm grows food three times faster than a regular garden, using 90 percent less water in the process.
A new farm is developed by IKEA’s Space10 innovative lab. The concept debuted at London Design Festival.
Lokal grows vegetables on stackable trays under LEDs without the need for soil and sunlight. Thanks to climate control system, it possible to grow plants all year round.
Space10 team is going to add sensors to the growing trays. This will allow at-home farmers to track how the greens grow via Google Home app. The main profile of Lokal is leafy vegetables.
