Mixtiles is an innovative home design startup, our mission is to create homes people love.
Today home design is kind of boring! All companies make the same products, with slightly different styles and prices. Not us! We believe in integrating tech, design, and engineering for fresh solutions.
We started with the world's best way to put photos on walls. Then we got into art and built the world's best art service! And now, we are excited to present easyplant - An exciting product that is helping people to fill their homes with beautiful long-living plants and improve the way we all live and breathe.

Meet easyplant - who we are?

As part of our mission to make home design frictionless we understood that plants are the worst home design product that dies constantly. We knew this is an engineering issue and we forged our focus towards a mission to prevent plants from dying. Hence, we invested 2 years and developed a self-watering system that prevents plants from dying.
The adoption rates of the product in the market are just phenomenal and we are accelerating our activity which is increasing our need for a top-notch Head of R&D to build the next generation of easyplant combining integrating technology with nature.
