Night Life

This night light fuses nature and technology with illuminating results. Designer Mariana Folberg crafts each leaf individually: cutting them out, engraving the intricate network of leaves, shaping them under heat into leafy contours. When lit by the low-heat bulb hidden within the clay pot, the leaves reflect an ethereal, ambient glow.

"Nothing is designed as meticulously as nature," Mariana says. When it comes to plants, "their shape and structure are designed to be perfectly functional, with each part perfectly in-sync and assisting the other." Handmade in San Francisco, California.

“Nothing is designed as meticulously as nature”

Botany might seem like an unlikely inspiration for lighting, but for designer Mariana Folberg, it makes perfect sense. “Nothing is designed as meticulously as nature,” she says. When it comes to plants, “their shape and structure are designed to be perfectly functional, with each part perfectly in-sync and assisting the other.” That eco-inspired design philosophy was honed during her training at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, and now she uses her skills for corporate clients and as a growing entrepreneur.

Comments about UncommonGoods Let it Glow Lamp:

I love it but the light is harsh, could be a lot softer, I will try to soften the light and if that works, it will be perfect

Service and delivery comments:

Delivery was prompt, packaging was way to big for the size of the item a waste of packing material and not good for the environment

Very disappointed. Not as picture, poorly made

      Comments about UncommonGoods Let it Glow Lamp:

      It's a terracotta pot with a whole drilled on the bottom. The inside is covered in aluminum foil. An LED light is mounted on the inside, mine is bent in one direction.

      The top portion if a piece of fake grass that was carelessly cut. Looks like a got an end piece. The grass is bent down flat on one side and it doesn't fit well inside the pot.

      The rest of the top consists of molded plastic with white plant veins painted on. The front and middle light up the back do not. I am guessing this is because of poor placement of the bulb.

      Although this is a "Handmade Product" it looks as if it was quickly thrown together without any thought or concern for quality.

      I really wanted to like this. Though it looked great on the site.

      Can't say enough about what a true disappointment this product is.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Let it Glow Lamp:

              It's cool looking sitting on a night stand, but (and maybe I didn't read the description well enough) all of the plant is made of plastic. It looked glass in the picture, but yeah was cheap looking plastic. It's also kind of small looking from a distance. Also the light that comes up from the bottom of it to light it up is kinda of harsh looking, seems like it should be softer. Also the price makes it really tough to justify. It seems like it's about double what it should be.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Arrived on time, was kind of falling apart in the box, I had to put it back together.

                My mom loved this from the moment she opened it! Such an uncommon gift! ;) It lights the kitchen up beautifully at night with its subtle glow. Lovely to look at, great to gift.
