I just love the idea of this lamp. Created by Israeli designer Meirav Barzilay it’s a metal grid into which you plant the vine of your choice and, as the plant grows it creates a natural lampshade. Simple. Clever. You must use an energy-saving bulb though as that provides the right sort of light.


as the plant grows it turns into the shade

The plant isn’t included in the price but it’s suggested that you choose a small, fast-growing one that doesn’t need full sunshine. If any gardening experts would like to add their suggestions below that would be most welcome.
