through an unconventional use of seaweed as a main material for a domestic environment, the ‘marine light’ by tel-aviv-based designer nir meiri plays on the tension between the artistic and the commercial. originally utilized by ancient cultures for different uses, seaweed today is cultivated and harvested on a commercial scale as a result of a growing interest driven by environmental concerns. the lamp combines a metal base and thin metal structural strings for the shade. the organic material is applied on the metal strings while still fresh – later drying and shrinking to obtain the form of the cover. ‘marine light’ will be presented at spazio rossana orlandi during salone del mobile 2013.

  • MUY BUENO!!!!!!!!

    fabio
  • Marvelous. Many questions; Smell? Durability? Maintaining color? Fixative? And please, can you make something wearable? Seriously. Nowhere else can we find colors as vivid, textures as fluid, and design so perfect for imagining fabric.
    Many thanks to you!
