Today’s Solutions: May 23, 2022

Every gardener and plant enthusiast knows that plants grow best with access to sunlight, either direct or indirect. But one German company has expanded the options for people and places that don’t have access to plenty of light.

Enter the Mygdal Plantlight – a concept that combines the beauty of nature with sleek technology design to help people grow plants anywhere indoors. Designed both as a pendant lamp and a standing lamp in two sizes, the Lamp Mygdal houses a plant inside an autonomous ecosystem so that it can grow in windowless rooms, basement apartments, or other light-deprived dungeons.

The glass-enclosed hanging pendant is hermetically sealed, creating a circular ecosystem so plants do not require watering. The cycle of condensation and evaporation provides enough moisture for the plants to thrive. What’s more, LED lights provide both light and adequate warmth to feed the environment and the plants.

Whether you’re stuck in an office cubicle, basement, or rainy city, these lamps mean you’ll still be able to benefit from light and greenery, turning the dreariest space into a bright, natural space.
