studio shulab: 'lightpot'

‘lightpot’ by kfir schwalb and orit magia

designers kfir schwalb and orit magia of studio shulab have sent us images of their latest work ‘lightpot’, a small pot for growing plants and herbs works with the use of LED lighting. ‘lightpot’ can be placed anywhere in the house and in any light condition.

‘lightpot’ – day

‘lightpot’ – night

‘lightpot’ shut

  • What is the purpose of having it close?

    phil says:
  • keeps it fresh in the fridge

    ion says:
  • Aw! Soo cute!

    V-ronn says:
  • Its to grow pot and keep the sun cycles right.

    420Gold says:
  • 420gold, I would believe those are a little bit too small to grow bud in. Try an Aerogarden if you truly want a kitschy pot to grow your “herbs” in.

    MyFattyNugs says:
  • The lightpot comes with a telescopic arm. This is so that the lightpot could “grow” with the plant.
    Therefore, at first when you buy the lightpot with only seeds in it, it is closed like a kind of Pandora box.
    You are the one to open it and with that gesture, start the ‘journey’ of the plant.

    Kfir Schwalb says:
  • nice for growing pot 🙂

    kimas says:
  • Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed baby!

    the truth says:
  • “Pot” grows to a height of ~6′. How the hell are you going to grow it in that?
    Furthermore, to grow “pot” you need heat as well as light.

    FatBoy Slim says:
  • Wow! Really amazing!
    Where can I purchase it?

    Galia says:
  • even if you couldn’t grow it to its full length in this pot, you could still cultivate the baby weed plants in it…

    p.s. i love how the majority of us were all thinking the same thing… MARIJUANAAAAAAAA

    purpleTR33S says:
