dutch designer roderick vos has brought the tropical rainforest into the home with his ‘bucketlight’ plant fixtures, a series of cast aluminum lamp housings. developed with built-in power sockets, the lighting objects organize office workspaces and offer a sense of well-being with ample sources of living greenery and efficient illumination. ‘in my opinion, the presence of plants bring a positive change to the working environment,’ says vos. ‘plants have a positive effect on the sense of wellbeing; tropical plants emit oxygen, clean the air and increase productivity. because we did not have enough floor space at our office and showroom, the bucket light was born – we created sockets in the objects enabling us to connect our computers our workstations avoiding heaps of tangled cords,’ he adds.
