Living Light is a lamp, which harvests its energy through the photosynthetic processes of a plant.
The energy crisis symbolizes a need for urgent replacement systems. We create a world where plants become part of our energy system. A cross-pollination of nature, science & design, we present you: the Living Light. Living Light is an atmospheric lamp which harvests its energy from the plant living next to the lamp itself. The light of the lamp is produced by 'plant microbial fuel cell technology ': energy generated by bacteria in the soil which release electrons while breaking down organic compounds of the plant. Softly stroking the leafs transforms this ordinary plant into a Living Light. The duration of light depends on the wellbeing of the plant: the better you take care of the plant, the more energy you will receive from the plant. Hereby Living Light will remind us once again that if we take good care of nature, nature will provide us with everything we need. This state of mutual dependence is a realisation humans lost over time, a realisation which we need to get back in time.
