“Where there’s light there must be life.”  Omer Arbel [1] places this thought at the core of his beautiful ’38′ chandelier. Designed to illuminate a room with both its brilliance and billowing succulents, this gorgeous hanging lamp also mimics the haphazard nature of plants growing in the wild with a jumble of wire, leafy greens, and light.

In order to create comfortable temperatures for the plants it holds, each of the chandelier’s hanging fixtures is made up of glass-blown bulbs that  are shaped to accommodate the in- and outflow of hot and cool air. Each of the large orbs can host two or three lights and plant life, while the smaller orbs make space for cacti [2]and soil-loving greens.

More of Arbel’s awesome designs can be found on his website [1].
