Growing a Kitchen Garden in a Light Fixture

A landscape designer and a product designer combined creative forces to bring the garden into the kitchen. A collaboration that resulted in Klorofyll, a suspended light fixture that doubles as a hanging kitchen garden for growing aromatic herbs.

Both functional and decorative, Klorofyll is part of the trend for growing one’s own, even if it’s just a few herbs, and also reflects consumer interest in personalization–users can decide how to use the product in a way that fits their tastes.

Klorofyll’s 360° rotating cylinder contains six openings for removable planters, and two LED light rings which provide illumination, its electric wiring contained within the suspension cable and other technical parts inside one end of the module.

As a pendant light, it provides functional lighting for the kitchen work space and at the same time enables cooks to snip culinary herbs from directly overhead. A gentle spin rotates the cylinder on its axis to reveal a different herb pot. If ambient light is inadequate for healthy plant growth, Klorofyll replicates photosynthesis with the LED lights within its built-in light elements. Pretty cool…now I want one.

In addition to the messed-upped-ness of referring to women only in terms of their relationships to others: what if she isn’t?  What if she’s a single, childless, only child with no living parents?  Does she matter less then?

Devil’s Bridge

Kromlauer Park is a gothic style, 200-acre country park in the municipality of Kromlau in the Görlitz Gablenzgasse district in Germany. An incredible attraction of the park is the Rakotzbrücke, more popularly known as Devil’s Bridge.

The impressive arch bridge was built around 1860. During its construction, other peculiar rock formations were built on the lake and in the park. Devil’s Bridge is no longer open to the public to ensure its preservation. A unique feature of the bridge is that its reflection on the water’s surface creates a flawless circle, regardless of which side is being viewed.

She shared this tonight saying:

“I’m a goin’ to Ningbo (宁波!) this August, so Belly Dance China put together a li’l docu-mercial about this here RB to introduce me to the dancers there. I think they did a nice job.”

I… absolutely ADORE this woman.

This was put together so beautifully! Her passion for what she does shows so brightly in her interviews, even then ones in text - so much so I tear up. I think thats one of the things that draws me to her so much… it just shows in her eyes, every time she talks and dances. The people of China are going to love her.
