glasshouse‘ by czech designer kristýna pojerová is a mini greenhouse that double functions as pendant lamp. on show at prague designblok 2011, the light has been created to satisfy the desire to grow fresh herbs within an urban kitchen. the donut-shaped base features an opening at its centre, allows one to reach inside the glass form to plant small herbs within the gutter-like opening which runs around the radius of the lamp. not only facilitating easy access to the plants, it also acts as the passage of light from which an electrical bulb hangs, and ensures adequate ventilation enhancing the natural microclimate. ‘glasshouse’ makes use of the otherwise useless heat waste of the bulb, which can also be easily regulated with a dimmer placed over the lamp.

  • If you pinch or snip, then pick, you only need one hand. We’re not talking about a full seasons harvest here;only gathering what you need for that days food.
    I would worry more about mold and fungus in the growth chamber.
