Ivy Organic Lamp Shade

While at Yanko Design, I also saw this – perhaps another way to get us through the depths of winter.
IVY, The organic lamp shade by designers Izabela Cichecka and Marcela Kawka is an LED lamp planted into a flowerpot. The plant is then grown around the LED’s forming an organic lamp shade.
Here’s what the designers have to say about IVY:

“IVY is a home source of light made from LED’s. The Lamp consists of modules. Connecting them we decide the form and size of the lamp. The base of the lamp is a flowerpot, in which we are planting plants like ivy. The light is penetrating through the leaves of the plant, creating interesting lighting effects and the unique mood in the interior. The design is our attempt to combine nature with technology, two seemingly unfamiliar worlds.”

One of the comments at Yanko were concerned with plants getting light on the underside of the leaves…something I would not have thought about. Does anyone know if this would actually be a problem?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
