A Lamp That Grows...Absolutely Speechless!

Growing a Hyphae Lamp from Nervous System on Vimeo.

By far one of the most amazing things I have seen in a while. Talk about design and science working together! Nature really is amazing.

The Hyphae Lamp is a new series of algorithmically generated lighting designs by Nervous System. Each lamp is individually grown through a process based on leaf vein formation. No two lamps are alike. Each lamp casts a unique pattern of branching shadows on the wall and ceiling, creating an ethereal and organic atmosphere. The lamps are 3D-printed to order in nylon and illuminated with eco-friendly LED lights. The first 10 lamps in the series will be available for purchase on July 11th.
