Mydgal

Written by  Phoebe C.

Nui Studio (formerly We Love Eames) has designed a lamp that would allow a plant to grow inside it, without the use of direct sunlight and water. The project is titled the Mygdal plant lamp, and is built from glass and aluminum. Below we can see the glassblowers molds being carbonized. This helps the glassblowers form the glass into the desired shape. The glass blowers then work the glass to create the shape needed for the lamp. The designers claim the plants can grow undisturbed for years.

The plants placed inside this environment thrive on a completely self-sustained ecosystem that needs neither natural light or watering, with the installed LED lights sufficient enough to aid in photosynthesis for most plants.
The name of the lamp means "fertile soil" in Danish. Two minimal versions of the lamps were built, one to hang from the ceiling, while the other rests on top of a flat surface.

Nui Studio was founded in 2014 by Emilia Lucht and Arne Sebrantke.
