Algae Lamp by Christian Vivanco

Scientists claim that life has appeared in the sea and more than two thirds of our planet is covered by sea and ocean. Well, this is exactly what inspired the designer Christian Vivanco when creating the Algae Lamp. He said that he found algae extremely interesting because they are actually plants that live under the sea and they are in continuous movement. They look like they are dancing and they are very nutritious and healthy at the same time. Because they have a wide variety of colors, this lamp is also available in many colors, as you can see from the pictures.

The pendant lamp is pretty original, as it has a fluorescent tube inside and it is covered by two separate acrylic layers, one of them colored and transparent at the same time and the outer one white and looking frosted. This lamp can be used in any room at your choice, as it casts a gentle light and you just need to purchase the right color to match with the rest of the room. If you watch these lamps from the distance you will actually see some resemblance with the seaweed both by shape and color, too. ANy way, more about it on the producer’s web site – Almerich and on that belonging to the designer, Christian Vivanco.
