la grangette features smart technology that allows to grow plants for food use without wastes, recreating the optimal conditions for each of them to reach full maturity. it consumes 90% less water than in conventional agriculture, without herbicides or pesticides, and allows fewer CO2 emissions during the plant’s life cycle.

 

‘our collaboration with la grangette has been absolutely exceptional, giving pininfarina the opportunity to demonstrate its unique capabilities to help create and bring to market ground-breaking product and service experiences,’ said xavier blanc baudriller, head of experience and product design at pininfarina. ‘it is an embodiment of our core beliefs and values: from approaching technology as permeating the very fabric of the products we design, bringing together the tangible and the intangible into one inseparable whole, to focusing not only on the beauty of an object but also on the delight of interacting with it, or designing and developing products in more sustainable ways and promoting more sustainable ways of living.’

building on artificial intelligence and auto-growth monitoring, the home gardening appliance intuitively guides users throughout the various steps of growing plants. from indicating the most favorable seeding position for a healthy growth to information when the perfect time for harvesting has come, la grangette helps users discover new plants, scents and flavors.

 

everything is controlled via a mobile app designed to augment the sensorial experience of the product and of the plants growing inside it. its content and functionality helps users plan and experience a conscious and healthy diet.

la grangette has been designed with delicate and clean lines that suit every one type and style. it is available in three colors — light warm, cold grey, and dark warm — with solid wood finishes (oak, ash or pine) or in wood and metal.

‘la grangette is inspired by my childhood family home and by the vegetable garden where my grandfather lovingly grew all kinds of vegetables in the countryside of the south of france,’ said thibaut pradier, creator of la grangette. ‘we wanted to propose the same kind of experience, adapting it to the contemporary urban lifestyle: people today have less time and space but want to consume fresh, healthy products. so we came up with the idea of an indoor vegetable garden which, thanks to hydroponics techniques and the support of the most advanced technology, offers genuine, nutrient-rich products, grown to perfection, to be eaten when they are perfectly ripe.’
