Created by barcelona-based design studio Goula Figuera, (we presented you some times ago the previously project Line & Dots) ‘viride’ from latin green is a collection of experimental luminaries that combine two elements present in the domestic landscape: artificial lighting and vegetation. lamps and plants have been found within homes for centuries but always separately. plants, in order to live in interiors, rely on the need of natural light which enters through the windows, and its amount and quality has always conditioned the choice of a specific kind of plant for each interior space. however, in modern interiors, natural light is not always available, while, at the same time, the advances of artificial lighting today allow to grow vegetables without a single ray of sun.
“Viride blends the suggestive capability for transforming interiors of light with the decorative and natural beauty of plants in a new typology of object,” explain the designers. “The collection is composed of three different models each one specially designed for a specific plants’ morphology.”
‘viride’ by goula figuera blends the suggestive capability of transforming interiors with light and decorative plants in a new typology of object containing both. the collection is comprised of three different models, each one specially designed for each specific plant morphology. all of them have one or more LED panels with a color scheme suitable for interiors and at the same time, convenient for the growth of the plan. furthermore, the LEDs are programmed to turn on and off periodically in order to ensure that each greenery receives the most suitable amount of light.
