Natufia leads tech and wellness trend with the world's first fully-integrated and automated hydroponic kitchen garden
Kitchen Garden brings life, light and nutrient-rich plants from kitchen to table
TALLINN, ESTONIA - Luxury smart home appliance brand Natufia combines wellness and technology by debuting its Kitchen Garden as the world's first fully-integrated and automated hydroponic kitchen garden.
The technology of the Kitchen Garden automatically maintains the perfect light, temperature, water and pH level to ensure optimal health for the plants. It also optimizes all minerals, nutrients and vitamins for the non-GMO leaves and flowers. Since it is controlled indoors, homeowners do not need to worry about pesticides, herbicides or fungicides. These are year-round, 24/7, kitchen-to-table ingredients without the concern of weather challenges or seasons.
"Natufia is going beyond farm-to-fork and providing herbs and plants from kitchen-to-table. With the combination of our proprietary technology and high-end design, the Kitchen Garden allows you to now practice a sustainable lifestyle and eat healthy while minimizing your environmental impact through packaging, pollution, food miles, food waste and toxins," said Gregory Lu, Natufia co-founder. "It reduces waste in the food supply chain and gives the homeowners year-round control over what they want to grow, regardless of climate or season."
The seeds are strictly non-GMO, certified both organic and Demeter—today's most strict certification for seeds. They come in individual, patented seedpods and can grow anything from basil to lemongrass. The unit simultaneously grows 32 plants in handmade ceramic cups. The watering is fully automated, cascading from the top, down to each cup. This ensures that each plant receives the necessary amount of water and nutrients, which are dissolved directly into the water. Each Kitchen Garden can produce enough plants and herbs to ensure two harvests a day.
Also, by connecting it to the Wi-Fi, owners can monitor and control the machine through the cloud. It even has three playlists to play music for the plants: classical, ambiance and nature sounds.
Additional benefits and features include:
• Specially developed LED lights mimic nature and provide the optimal range of the light spectrum for plant growth.
• Tinted glass so people can see their plants growing in real time.
• Food-grade stainless steel for aesthetics and a clean environment for plants.
• The unit can be integrated seamlessly into any high-end kitchen design, similar to other appliances.
Natufia's continued innovation and cutting-edge technology has not gone unnoticed in the design world. After a recent Best in Category award win at the 2019 WestEdge Design Fair, Natufia will participate at several high-profile tradeshows in March, both abroad and within the United States.
The company exhibited at kbb Birmingham in the United Kingdom from March 1 to 4 and received the 2020 Innovation Award. The biennial show is the U.K.'s largest gathering of the world's best kitchen, bedroom and bathroom brands.
Natufia then travels to the Architectural Digest Design Show March 19-22 in New York, followed by the New England Food Show (NEFS) in Boston from March 22-24. NEFS is the region's largest restaurant and foodservice event with the latest products, services and technologies on display.
