A Lamp Containing A Self-Sustaining Ecosystem
The Nui Studio formerly known as ‚ Studio We Love Eames, released their new project the Mygdal plant lamp which allows plants to grow in windowless places.
Within the last months of development the team of Nui Studio succeeded in composing a lamp with a completely self-sustaining ecosystem where the plants can grow without the need of sunlight or watering.
Nature contributes significantly to our well-being. Therefore plants are playing a more and more important role in our urban environment. Not everyone has the necessary ,green thumb’ or enough daylight around.
The plant light Mygdal provides a smart way of having living plants even in windowless interiors. The name is a tribute to the involved glassmaker Peter Kuchinke from the village Mygdal in northern Denmark.
Freely translated Mygdal means „fertile soil”. The Mygdal plant lamps are created as a pendant lamp as well as a standing lamp in two different sizes.
