The Bolzano design studio Oberhauser presented Emotioncube microgreen. This is essentially the first complete microgreen solution in the hospitality industry.
Fresh fruit and vegetables for hotels and B&B
The cube is a walk-in climate greenhouse that provides a controlled environment for microgreens, in the style of vertical farms seen in Northern Europe (and especially a Singapore). The structure is made of transparent PDLC (Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal) and integrates thermally regulated lighting.
100% recyclable and "tailor-made"
the eco-climatic greenhouse is equipped, as mentioned, with PDLC glass, automatic doors, integrated infrared lighting and an air-conditioned stone floor. It can be an optimal solution to always supply fresh fruit and vegetables to a wide range of activities in the gastronomy, catering and hospitality sectors. But that's not all: this type of technology can act as a prototype for future home solutions: I dream of a “garden room”, which allows anyone with little effort to access fresh food every day. A more important room than closets or cellars, which can make the home really smart, bringing everyone closer to microgreens.
Emotioncube: Microgreen (and wine) for everyone
For a greenhouse to be effective, it must provide plants with an optimal climate for their growth. The most important factor is lighting: if the sunlight is too strong, it hinders growth. Stones such as tuff (a volcanic rock rich in calcium carbonate) absorb and reflect light: this is also why they create ideal environments, even for cellars.
Emotioncube creates this controlled environment, and it is no coincidence that it was conceived for both microgreens and wines: it is possible to create a "cellar cube" to be placed anywhere, and able to store wines much better than any refrigerator or cabinet. specific. The special glass of this greenhouse can become opaque or transparent on command, protecting its precious contents in all cases.
For now, as mentioned, in the places of hospitality. In the near future it will be a viable option for everyone: once, think about it, there was not even a bathroom in the houses. One day they will ask "how did our ancestors do without the garden room?"
