Illuminated Ecosystems

Nui Studio (formerly We Love Eames) has designed a lamp fit for the dim and sun-shielded garden apartments of the world, the living and working locations that are void of the light needed to grow lush plants indoors.

The project is titled the Mygdal plant lamp, and is built from mouth-blown glass and aluminum. The plants placed inside this environment thrive on a completely self-sustained ecosystem that needs neither natural light or watering, with the installed LED lights sufficient enough to aid in photosynthesis for most plants.

The name of the lamp is a tribute to the Danish hometown of glassmaker Peter Kuchinke, and translates to mean “fertile soil.” Two minimal versions of the lamps were built, one to hang from the ceiling, while the other rests on top of a flat surface.
