Innovative Lamps With Plants In Them Bring Life To Windowless Spaces
By Yap Yen, 15 Mar 2016
The Mygdal plant lamp by Emilia Lucht and Arne Sebrantke of German design studio We Love Eames makes it possible for plants to grow in windowless spaces.
There are two versions, a pendant lamp and a standing lamp, both of which can have small plants growing in them, with the LED light replicating the direct sunlight they would need. The standing lamp contains an electrically conductive glass coating (patent pending), enabling it to stream the electricity invisibly along the surface, which removes the need for a cable connection between the power source and the LED light.
Their design process included creating a template for the glass lamp to be shaped on, creating a mold which would help the glassblowers form the glass into the desired shape. The resulting lamps are a completely self-sustaining ecosystem, and they claim that the plants can grow undisturbed for years.
No news about when these lamps will be available for purchase, but for now visit the studio’s website or head over here for more details.
