Plant lamp: “Mygdal” from Nui Studio

Plants can’t thrive just anywhere: plant lovers have it especially difficult in dark places. The plant lamp of the German design duo Nui Studio offers new possibilities.

“Mygdal” utilises the physical similarity between sunlight and LED light. The Nui Studio designed the plant lamps in such a way that a completely autonomous ecosystem prevails indoors. The plant is inserted and surrounded by glass. It can now practice natural photosynthesis. As a homage to the Danish glassmaker Peter Kuchinke, the name of the lamp means “fertile earth“.

The plant lamp is equipped with an innovative glass coating, with which current is carried over the surface. This means that no other connection between the lamp and the power source is necessary. Thanks to the flexible power supply, “Mygdal” has versatile uses: as a hanging, floor or table lamp.
