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:

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.
