It's always a thrill to discover nature thriving in improbable places.
Nui Studio, founded in 2014 by Emilia Lucht and Arne Sebrantke, comes through with an innovative design solution for green-fingered plant lovers who struggle with low-lit living spaces.
The project is titled the Mygdal plant lamp, and is built from mouth-blown glass and aluminum. "Within the last months of development we succeeded in composing a lamp with a completely autonomous ecosystem consisting of plants operating naturally photosynthetic. The name is a tribute to the glassmaker Peter Kuchinke from the village of Mygdal in northern Denmark. Roughly translated Mygdal means „fertile soil"," said the team. The brand's gizmo promises to feed most plants with enough synthesis thanks to its self-contained LED lighting.
The lamp comes in two sizes, one to hang from the ceiling, while the other rests on top of a flat surface. For now Mygdal is just a prototype, but the designers are actively looking for partners to put it into production. We wish them good luck!
