AEROPONICS

Aeroponic technology enables growing plants completely without soil. Instead, the roots of the plants are submerged in a nutrient fog. The composition of nutrients in the fog can be customized to mimic certain growing environments for special species. 

MODULARITY

The adjustable growing tray divides the volume into two hermetically separated growing chambers. This allows mimicking two entirely different environments for different plants to grow simultaneously. 

The lower "deep tray" simulates an environment for root vegetables like potatoes and carrots. The Gaggenau Home Garden was designed for giving the user freedom to grow a big variety of plants - everything from herbs to pumpkins and chilies or strawberries.

INTERFACE

The front panel of the appliance turns into a screen for the user to oversee the automated growing process. This digital layer records the process and allows the user to experiment by tweaking certain factors of the growing environment.

Furthermore, the user can browse through Gaggenau's Seed Libraries to order new seed or share experiences and results in the community.
