Vertical Farming is a term used by futurologists to denote multi-level greenhouses providing a local and space-saving supply of fresh produce, for example in urban conurbations. With the Plantcube from Agrilution, this revolutionary concept is now finding its way into private households. Fully automatic, small-scale vertical farms are no larger than a standard refrigerator, offer perfect growing conditions combined with minimal effort – and are a design highlight in any kitchen or living room. With Agrilution's concept, Miele is further expanding its expertise in the field of the diversity of pleasures and healthy living.
Energy-efficient, innovative domestic appliances make a key contribution towards greater sustainability in homes. Consequently, Miele strives to continue to increase energy efficiency across all product groups. The sustainability report published today illustrates just how well Miele has succeeded in doing this. For example, 99% of all washing machines achieve the top A+++ energy efficiency rating, even overperforming by as much as 50%.
