Imagine that you have a magical wall in your home, one that grows fresh food and filters the water in your home, cyclically everyday, for the rest of your life. Set to change the way we live into a more decentralised model, Mother – an international entrepreneurial network with Belgian roots – utilizes Fusion 360 to design products for self-sufficiency that last a lifetime.
“In a hyperconnected society, people’s wealth and access to basic necessities is dependent upon several uncontrollable and unpredictable factors.” Through the creation of an ecosystem of self-sufficiency products, it is Mother’s ambition to establish fully self-sufficient spaces and houses, in order to limit this uncertainty and dependability.
Mother products integrate industry proven technology to create innovative, durable and user-friendly designs. Their first product is a full-spectrum LED grow-light technology that allows farmers to grow all kinds of plants, in any stage of growth, with minimal energy consumption.
After shipping their professional LED grow-lights to indoor farms across Europe last year, Mother was inspired to develop their next product, MicroFarm. Designed using Autodesk’s Fusion 360 software, MicroFarm is a smaller-scale indoor grow-light technology, readily available to any and all end- consumers. The design is modular and made out of sustainable and high-quality materials.
The company recently announced a partnership with Van Hoecke , a top player in the furniture industry of the Benelux. Expect to see their systems integrated in kitchens and other furniture by 2020.
