This plant-powered atmospheric lamp is the first of its kind. Created by Dutch designer Ermi van Oers, the Living Light harvests energy from living plants using the process of photosynthesis. You get the plant to emit light by stroking its leaves. The better you take care of the plant, the more energy it will produce. This means the lighting is not for those lacking a green thumb.

The highly crafted atmospheric lamp boasts both glass blowing techniques and 3D printing. The plant is surrounded by a glass tube and uses microbial fuel cell technology to provide light. Other microbial fuel cells have been used in the treatment of wastewater.

The Living Light was developed along with the Netherlands-based research group Plant-e.
