German designers Nui Studio have created a simple way to bring the health benefits of greenery into window-less spaces with this lamp-meets-terrarium. Each piece hermetically seals a self-sustaining ecosystem inside an LED-lit blown-glass vessel.
Barcelona designers Álvaro Goula and Pablo Figuera recently prototyped a series of minimal, modern planters, each fitted with one or more round LED panels. The light source is calibrated to cast a glow that is comfortable to the eye, as well as beneficial to the plant.
Gople lamp RWB
Developed for Artemide by BIG, this mouth-blown glass pendant’s RWB LED source is adjusted to enhance the well-being of humans as well as to boost the growth of plant life. Its red and blue radiations at varying wave-lengths support different phases of the grow cycle.
LimbusFloor Subtle GreenFrame
Both a plant stand and a room divider, this multi-functional piece was designed for Glimakra of Sweden by Johan Kauppi. The solid ash frame is integrated with a flora-sustaining lamp, and itself evokes a window, making it ideal for spaces lacking daylight.
