Plants purify the air, improve the indoor climate and lift our mood. With houseplants we bring nature and its benefits into the living space. How can we experience living with plants in the future, and how can the green roommates be combined with the furniture design? Plantshine forms a synthesis of lamp and plant, of atmospheric room lighting and plant light. With a spectrum of midday sun and sufficient light intensity, the light supports growth in the evening and especially on dark winter days. A plug-in system based on two types of connecting nodes and two stick lengths allows modular construction at different heights. The clear geometric shape can be individually equipped with climbing trellises and textile sails. Thus, not only the growth of the plant is included, the plant itself becomes part of the design as a living lampshade.
