The unending winter season can be pretty dark in Scandinavia, and a lot of plants will be happy to get some extra light whether in the office or at home. Growlight is a lamp that can be plunged directly into the soil of any plant in need of extra light. There is also a table version with a marble base to place your sun-deprived plants on.
Hallgeir Homstvedt says “the Growlight project started with a desire to introduce more greenery in the work environment.” Research shows that the right combination of light and plants has significant health benefits, both physically and psychologically. "When setting out to design a lamp for plants, it was important to design a lamp that would not compete for attention, but rather complement or blend with the plants' inherent beauty."
The Growlight draws inspiration from flowers, trees and fungi, with their slender stem and large canopy. Another important feature is the lamp's ability to “grow” with the plant. The shade can be easily adjusted in height and angle through a unique magnetic solution. With the Growlight we wanted to offer an alternative to existing solutions, with a more playful approach to design and use.
The Growlight was developed for Elementa, a small Norwegian furniture brand with a desire to change the way we work.
