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.
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.”
