The Lamp Mygdal by Nui Studio is a functioning table or pendant lamp inside which is an autonomous ecosystem that allows plants to grow in windowless or dark environments.
Nui Studio Lamp Mygdal
Now even the most dimly lit, windowless rooms can foster plant life. The team at Germany’s Nui Studio, formerly known as “Studio We Love Eames”, has devised a lamp that allows plants to photosynthesize in environments in which they previously could not.
Through its smart design, the plant light Mygdal has an electrically conductive glass coating rendering an invisible connection between the power source and the LED. This technical innovation combined with an aesthetically pleasing design of mouth blown and hand-finished glass creates a soothing atmosphere that illuminates, literally and figuratively.
The lamps are named after Peter Kuchinke, a glassmaker from Mygdal, a village in Northern Denmark. When translated into English, the word Mygdal means “fertile soil.”
You can get an idea of the size by looking at the images of them cleaning and hanging the Lamp Mygdal below.
Although they have produced several, the lamps are not yet available for purchase*. However, Studio Nui says its goal is to start manufacturing them on a larger scale. *Now available for purchase, they offer two different sized pendants you can see here
