Botany might seem like an unlikely inspiration for lighting, but for industrial designer Mariana Folberg, it makes sense. “The aesthetics of plants, their shape, and structure are designed to be perfectly functional,” she tells us in an email, “with each part perfectly in-sync and assisting the other. Nothing is designed as meticulously as nature.” This was the inspiration for her series of plant lamps, which combine contemporary lighting with the beauty of green flora.
The innovative plant lamps are available in Folberg’s Etsy shop, Mar de Fe.
