Acorn

About

A tool for growing trees in the desert

Acorn is a biodegradable plant base that helps plants to root and improves the quality of desert soil. The project is designed to be entirely beneficial to the environment. Raw materials from crop waste are collected and compressed into boards that are completely biodegradable in soil, contributing minerals and nutrients as they decompose. After being compressed, the boards are laser cut to build the components of Acorn. The user begins by burying the plant and Acorn base together. She then adds water, which the base absorbs to remain moist. The plant’s roots grow within the base and absorb nutrients from it. After four months of continuous growth, Acorn will have entirely decomposed, leaving the plant well-nourished and strongly rooted in the ground.

    Feast Industrial Design Studio is a student studio established in 2008 by 5 students of the Department of Industrial Design at Huazhong University Of Mechanical science and engineering. Here is a self-learning, independent innovation platform for the student from the product design department. The team members will participate some domestic and foreign industrial design competitions, and do some crossover projects with other students from Another major. We not only enhance our professional skills in practical and appreciate the diversification of crossover cooperation, but also gain friendship from each other, and understand what is team spirit.more
