Specialized Quarters For Your Plant by Alex Ward - 2009 Hydroponics is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions, without soil; and the Eve Lamp here allows you to do just that. It may seem a bit frivolous to have a dedicated home just for a single plant, but those with serious green-thumbs will probably appreciate this.
Fresh Chair An incredibly futuristic idea for a city bench! The fresh chair offers a place for rest, shade in the sun, light in the dark and cooling mist in the midst of midday heat. The integrated plants trap energy for the LED lights. The lamp umbrella provides shade and the plants create a refreshing mist. One has to wonder whether we will see those amazing inventions on our streets any time soon!
The Folia Lumina by Tineke Beunders and Nathan Wierink / ONTWERPDUO. A LED light like a plant coming with different 'leaves', each reflecting, discolouring, muting or strengthening the light in their own way. By clamping them on to the trunk and rotate or move them, one instantly creates a different range of light and atmosphere. The Folia Lumina does not need water, but perks up by a whiff of attention.
GreenLantern Red Edition (Romolo Stanco). Made of liquid wood. Conceived and designed by Romolo Stanco, produced in collaboration with laboratories Politec Valtellina and scientific supervision of Stephen Besseghini. The curious and elegant form binds two functions, that of the LED lamp and a vase, integrating technology with the artistic gesture. GreenLantern Red Edition has a fluid line and organic light produced by the special LED lamp allows the plant to perform photosynthesis they need.
