Jumpstart Your Day: These Lovely Lamps Let You Grow Plants in Windowless Rooms
Light will never be a problem for your green wonders
Those who want to start an indoor garden or those who simply want to care for a few plants indoors, have one common concern—how can these plants get enough sunlight? This seem impossible—especially if you are planning to place the plants in the bathroom as decor or in a room where there's no window.
Lucky for us, German design studio We Love Eames came up with the enchanting Mygdal plantlamp, a lamp that would allow a plant to grow inside it without direct sunlight or water. The designers claim that it's a self-sustaining ecosystem where plants can grow for years.

According to a feature by Contemporist, the team created a template for the glass lamp to be shaped on. This involves creating a mold, then the glass was blown for the lamp. For more details on the process, click here.
There are two versions of the lamp—one pendant lamp and a standing version. Both have LED lights that replicate the need for sunlight. With this light source, the plants can do photosynthesis.
The standing lamp also has a special feature—it has an electrically conductive glass coating (they've already requested for the patent), which streams electricity along the surface so there's no need for a cable connection between the power source and the LED light. The Mygdal plantlamp is perfect for hotels, offices, and small apartments.
