Heads up, home gardeners and big city dwellers: the Cynara lamp is the newest arrival on the lighting solution scene for home gardening. Fitted with LED and incredibly energy-efficient (7 watt, as the router of the wifi), the chic terracotta lampshade's job may be to keep your vegetables, herbs, and house plants* happy and growing all year long, but it also lends green thumbs a helping hand in terms of cultivating a stylish interior.
The Cynara can be attached to an aluminium rod and placed directly in your pot, or securely hung overhead, literally growing with the plant.
An innovative design by Italian label Bulbo, featured by magazines as Domus, Wohnrevue, Hearst Home, Interni, Icon, and Elle Decoration UK, this locally-produced wonder makes it easy to transform the darkest corners of your apartment into a lush oasis.
*The Cynara emits a coloured light which is the combination of several selected light frequencies enabling to grow medium-sized vegetables, herbs, flowers and succulents indoor. Scientific experimentation in collaboration with DISTA, the Department of Agricultural Sciences, University of Bologna – Alma Mater Studiorum (2012-2013)
