Plant-Like Lumieres

The BLUM Lamp Absorbs Solar Power in Order to Provide Light After Sunset

— June 29, 2012 — Art & Design
If planting a light bulb in some soil would cause a light fixture to sprout up from the ground, the BLUM Lamp would be the result of that futuristic agriculture. Taking its aesthetic influence from plants, the BLUM Lamps looks like something that requires water and sunlight to continue living.

While watering the lamp may not bring about any beneficial results, the light source does act like a plant in that it absorbs solar power through the panels on top and provides light after the sun has gone down. The two pod-shaped bulbs are reminiscent of a budding flower, allowing the user to shine a light in two separate directions.

Perfect for those who enjoy the calming properties of flowers, this plant will still be around even if you neglect it for a week.
