Design Sleuth: A Very Sophisticated Growlight

Erin Boyle September 12, 2013

I spotted no fewer than ten fancy grooming supplies to add to my wishlist after reading Sarah’s post yesterday on the new Spruce Apothecary in Portland. But it was the brass and handblown glass lamp-cum-planter hanging above the shop’s sink that really caught my eye. A planter with its very own light source? A dream come true for this dim apartment dweller.

Above: Turns out that the lamp was designed with someone like me in mind: “individuals limited by light, space, or temperatures outside,” but who “desire a vegetal element in their world nonetheless.” Precisely. 

Above: Aptly named the Growlight, the fixture is the work of Carmen Salazar, one half of the husband and wife design team, Seimon & Salazar. Base planting material is provided with the purchase of the lamp, and the team explains that the planter is especially suited for tropicals, epiphytes, fresh herbs, and succulents. Lamps can be hung as pendants or wall sconces or converted to act as table or floor lamps. Contact Seimon & Salazar to order directly; the Growlight is also available via Lightopia for $1,200.
