Green as glass

Glasshouse is the ideal urban greenhouse, and it doubles up as a functional pendant lamp.

Czech designer Kristýna Pojerová’s Glasshouse is a little greenhouse inside a functional pendant lamp.

Created as the ideal way to grow fresh herbs in an urban kitchen, the shape of the Glasshouse pays special attention to the way that herbs typically grow.

The herbs are planted along the inside wall of the glass lamp, along a kind of “gutter” surrounding the central opening. This opening makes it easy to reach into the Glasshouse to make use of the fresh produce growing inside.

Furthermore, the opening allows for the passage of light via an electrical light suspended above the Glasshouse. It also ensures that the plants receive adequate ventilation to enhance this microclimate.
