Yes, your eyes are playing tricks on you. What looks like a mythical treasure one would stumble upon in a storybook tale, is in fact a beautiful eco-friendly combination of reclaimed wood and LED lights. Great Mushrooming is taking inspiration from the world’s best designer, Mother Nature, to create these luminous mushrooms whose only magic lies in their ability to charm.
Exhibited at the Design Festa 2010, the Great Mushrooming’s work could easily be classified as fine art. Carefully handcrafted from glass, discarded wood and LED lights, the newly-formed fungi’s precise details are only cheekily offset by the industrial plastic on/off dial affixed to the side of each lamp. We’re struck by how this seemingly odd contrast adds a certain analog appeal to each light.
