Biophilia

Hanging lamp, made of sintered polymer, takes cues from its growth-like method of manufacture – 3D-printing – is an industrial product designed as a living organism, albeit belonging to the Plantae rather than the Animalia. Fed by its web of veins, it sprouts and grows from the light source.

Rhizaria

Hanging and table lamp, also of sintered polymer and mouth-blown Murano glass, is inspired by the simple primordial organisms able to create tiny and complex structures, that illuminated the ocean depths and produced oxygen that eventually caused life to develop on Earth.
