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.

Light bulb dimming and flickering after 8 month of use

1

I bought this light 08/2017. It acts as a night light and is set on timer, an hour in the morning and two hours in the evening. After 8 months, the light dimmed and flickered. Do I have to change the bulb? I originally gave this item 5 stars, now I give a mere 1.

Nice Lamp - Quality Not Worth the Price

2

The pictures on the website are of better quality than the actual light. The lighted leaves are constructed well and when lit, gives off a unique light which was the main attraction to this piece. When opening the boxed item, it was disappointing because you could immediately see the poorly the item was constructed. The grass was haphazardly glued into the base of the light, and the rubber backings on the bottom of the plant were missing and those that were on, were stuck on carelessly. The switch to turn the light on and off was poorly put together and is very difficult to to turn on and off. The concept is beautiful, however, the actual product is disappointing. The one I received is no where near the price point listed on this site. For that price, I expect top quality.

Beautiful lamp.

Makes a unique night light or accent to any room. The way the leaves glow is beautiful. From the catalog picture and description, I thought the leaves were glass. They are more of a Lucite consistency. Still lovely.

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

Very disappointed. Not as picture, poorly made

1

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.
