Plants of Light

Schattengewächs begins like any other grow-it-yourself plant kit but the payoff isn’t a real plant, rather it’s a light – shaped like flowers, trees and even insects. Adore the play between real and artificial. There’s no power switch. It automatically “grows” thanks to a photosensor and the whole thing runs on four coin cell batteries. The pot is made of clay and all the inner bits are molded from biological plastic. By the way, Maximilian Winkel is an awesome name. I will say it all day today.
