Photosynthesis Lamp Produces More Than Light

May 31, 2011 by

Tel Aviv-based product designer, Meirav Peled Barzilay, combines both light, nature, and sustainable design with her Photosynthesis Lamp, a customized hanging light fixture and “grow light” constructed of a metal grid with a vine at its base.

You simply select your vine and let it grow to create a natural lampshade. Using an energy saving light bulb will help your plant grow and also provide eco-friendly light.

Barzila says she enjoys exploring various materials and finding different ways of using them.

According to the designer, her “designs are inspired by traditional crafts on the one hand and serial-production on the other, constantly striving to mix the two, testing the borders of design and finding new ways of looking at things.”
