Nature keeps inspiring more and more designers, and we tend to get more and more pieces that bring a sense of nature and calmness to our homes. Marko Vuckovic has long been working to bring the benefits of nature into the household in ways that go far beyond the boundaries of the traditional potted plant, and he succeeded!
A green oasis enclosed inside a glass bowl, the Mosslamp takes influence from the Swedish town of Malmö. The lamp channels the unique possibilities of the moss plant, able to grow in places that would not be covered by other plants. Inside Vuckovic’s glass bowl is a pre-formed foam shape made from recycled plastic, over which the moss begins to grow. Vuckovic intends for everyone to be able to personalize their moss lamp by creating a unique design for the shape of the foam using schematics, and then proceeding to 3D print it. The moss would then be able to grow on the individual shape.
The stand beneath the glass bowl is made with one piece of carefully selected aluminum formed into a heat-resistant ring that’s not attached to the bowl itself. All electrical parts carry LED lightning, illuminating the moss from below. The bowl can also be used as a hanging Mosslamp, making it practical and easy to use.
