Hanging Garden Lamps Green Up Interiors
March 26, 2013 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
One of my favorite Brooklyn artisan-makers is the collaborative design studio, Autumn Workshop, whose Scrap Ecology lighting we featured a while back. The studio creates a variety of lighting that derives its inspiration from biophilia, the natural connection between human beings and other living systems.
Made from woods like reclaimed teak and blackened steel, it’s a planter box to which they’ve added a top with lighting turning it into a combination planter and pendant lamp that can be made in various lengths to fit the size of the room and which one can view from all sides.
Autumn Workshop designs furniture and other products using readily available materials, building them from reclaimed, found, or scrap materials with which they integrate botanical and ecological components–an idea they believe will promote positive energy and healthy living in our constructed environment.
