Indoor interactive garden system for stress relief
We design a system, which will relieve stress for the users through their interaction with the garden-system in their house .The involvement with the garden will be a way of decompression for the user, giving them euphoria that will stem from the care for the garden but also from observing it.
The beneficial influence of the therapeutic gardens can become a reality either with the observation or with involvement of someone with the garden.
The system is intended to be used indoors, in the user’s appartement or house.The conditions are controlled regarding temperature, light etc.
The users who this system is targeted towards will be individuals who are taken over with anxiety and intense stress in their everyday life.The users would be older than 20 years old and would look for an immediate and personal way of releasing stress.
