Oceanic Lamp Fixtures
Neri Meiri's Seaweed Lamps are a Crunchy Endeavour

By: Ian Andrew Panganiban (Star) Apr 2, 13

Seaweed has many uses in society, from as skincare to as food, but now people can add seaweed lamps to that list. Tel Aviv-based designer Neri Meiri showcases another use for this underwater grass by transforming it into light fixtures.

The Marine Light design uses a metal base for the structure of the shade, which is then later applied with fresh seaweed. The green algae is left to dry in order to attain a form that will provide a shape for the lamp.

With the pressing concern of environmental issues knocking at the door steps of every major corporation, using organic and non-harmful materials such as seaweed could solve the issue of conscious consumerism in the world— and if you get bored of your lamp, you can just eat it.
