Nui Studio has conceived a lamp to allow plants to grow in windowless places. Mygdal plant lamp is a completely self-sustaining ecosystem where the plants can grow without the need of sunlight or watering.
“Nature contributes significantly to our well-being,” says Arne Sebrantke. “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. The standing lamp has an electrically conductive glass coating rendering an invisible connection between the power source and the LED. This technical innovation opens up new opportunities in luminaire design.
The aesthetic combination of light and plants inside a mouth-blown and hand-finished glass lamp creates a soothing atmosphere.
