Fragile Future 2 LED Lamp Made From Dandelions
October 28th, 2008
The Fragile Future 2 lighting fixture really lives up to its name. You see, each tiny light source is actually framed by the seed pods of a dandelion. Now why is it called the Fragile Future 2? Presumably, because the Fragile Future 1 was just a little TOO breakable.
Created by Lonneke Gordijn of the Dutch outfit known as DesignDrift, the Fragile Future 2 lamp combines the modern, linear look of circuit board traces and LED illumination with the contrasting organic shapes of puffy dandelion heads.
Each one is custom-built and is made from modular pieces, so you can build complex wall fixtures using anywhere from 3 to 50 light modules.
All I can say is that you’d better not sneeze anywhere around this thing.
The Fragile Future 2 is available from Generate LE.
