Get to the root of it: Introducing… Sprig!

Now you can water your garden without ever bending over. That’s because Sprig features a funnel that you can directly pour water into. Even better, perforations at the end of the stake distribute water evenly around the plant’s roots. Vincent Vedie wanted a simpler, more streamlined way to manage his garden, so he invented Sprig. […]

More air, less noise: Introducing… Ario!

  Window fans are annoying: They’re loud, clunky, and barely get the job done. Fortunately, Ario clusters a bunch of smaller fans together to create a silken symphony of silence. The volume of air Ario produces is similar to that of a larger, noisier fan, but the smooth surfaces don’t interrupt the air stream, reducing unnecessary […]
