Stumped By A Tree

The idea behind the Tree & Root Lamp is to make us aware of the fact that we are cutting down way too many trees. So how does Kitae Pak translate this into motion? When positioned inverted in the pot, the lamp signifies a dead root, with the tree cut-off. Upright the lamp and it illuminates the room, depicting the true virtues of a tree and its importance in our lives. Besides the poetic garble, I simply think it’s an elegant design that can find pride in many homes.

    Like the fact that chic and clever design is combined with a deeper conscientious message.

    Cute concept
    However when the lamp is off and not using energy it is symbolising a dead tree. and when its switched on and using energy the symbol is a healty tree.

    It feels as thou its back the front.I have to use electricity to symbolise a positive impact on the environment?

    I agree with Jono. I imagined the tree symbol as lights off and the dead root image as lights on. This would make more sense for the reasons Jono stated. The use of plastics is also questionable as they’re often impossible to recycle or dispose of. Trees, on the other hand (if properly managed) are a great renewable resource. Nice idea, but conflicting messages.
