bulbo ‘cynara’ + ‘quadra’ LED light systems stimulate the photosynthesis process indoors, allowing city dwellers to experience farming from the comfort of their homes. the italian start-up envisions smart solutions for agriculture in urban environments all year round, promoting a relationship between people and nature as they have the chance to produce vegetables, herbs, flowers and succulents.

‘quadra’ allows you to grow fruits and vegetables from the comforts of your own home

 

 

 

the ‘quadra’ grows a wide range of food thanks to its technology developed from numerous years of research about plants-light interaction. it reproduces the ideal spectrum to promote photosynthesis by shining a colored beam that is a combination of several frequencies. these beacons cover the entire life cycle of any vegetables, kitchen herbs, flowers and succulents from germination to flowering. conceptualized to fit all spaces, the 14 watt light has side knobs that allow for height extension of up to 50cm and can be rotated to multiple locking positions.
