While I was initially brainstorming ideas for Silo Acres, I’ve discovered the limited market of aesthetically pleasing grow lamps. My lamp idea came from one of my early design courses in college, Intro to 3D Design. I created a concrete desk lamp that illuminated a photograph for my final. I took its basic design and set out to create an industrial yet elegant grow lamp.
The body of each lamp is concrete, while the wire is wrapped in cord to soften the minimal design and provide textural contrast. I’m not much of a wiz when it comes to power tools, so I opted to use legos for the concrete cast as seen below.
