Toronto-based industrial designer Ryan Taylor’s Babylon Light [2] is a modern lighting fixture that doubles as a planter. Just like the futuristic kitchen light from Back to the Future [3], this multipurpose pendant lamp can be used to grow basil, rosemary, thyme, or even tomatoes!

Made from powder coated aluminum, this centerpiece could serve as not only a kitchen light, but also as a working herb garden [5]. Any kind of plant can be kept in the Babylon Light, but it seems most appropriate for homeowners with a knack for growing [6] their own produce for cooking.

Ryan Taylor is currently showcasing the Babylon Light at IDS 2013 PROTOTYPE [7] in Toronto until January 27th. The light will also be presented at the Gladstone Hotel from April 25 through the 28th. Supplies are limited, so visit his website for more information.
