If you film a plant, you’d realize they make spectacular movements though most of them seem to do quite the opposite. This amazing lamp is the result of one of Pepe Heykoop’s graduation projects at the Design Academy Eindhoven. ‘Lightness of being’ is a literal expression of being lightweight as well as being fragile, being vulnerable to life. What grabs me is how the length of this lamp (3.5m) defies gravity and is able to be in impossible positions thanks to 6 flexible joints in its stem. The lamp slowly collapses with a press on a huge pedal. What’s there not to love about having a giant Alice in Wonderland like flower in your home?
