A COMPOSTABLE CAPSULE

The pendant lamp ‘Seedling’ reminds of an opening seed capsule releasing a seedling into its life. The capsule mysteriously hides the light source and thus creates an optical play for the viewer who seeks to look inside to understand it. The downward emitting light predestines the pendant light for contract usage scenarios. When replacing the light source, the shade can be lifted upwards freely. To be able to return the capsule to the earth after its lifespan, only compostable materials were used. Thus the shade can transform to earth, which in turn represents new breeding ground for tree seeds. Its production happens at a social enterprise in Germany.
