Fluorescent lights  might not be your first choice for ambient outdoor lighting this summer, but the LIVE LAMP  transforms that unenchanting frigid glow into a beautiful globe radiating with life. Designed by Kara Bartlet  for the Summer 2010 to(HOLD) line, this otherworldly piece is a glowing glass orb patterned with eighty living Fuschii V Gracillis Tillandsia air plants.
Kept alive by an energy-efficient CFL grow lamp that attaches within the orb, these epiphytic plants survive with no dirt – just UV, air, and a little bit moisture. With no green thumb required – except for a spritz of water once a week – you can keep those hands free from the rougher perils of gardening , saving them for more enterprising summer activities.
