Object of Desire: Pendant Lights from Spruitje in Norway

November 5, 2018

Amsterdam-based designer Jonael van der Sloot describes his terrarium pendant lights as tiny “sustainable worlds.”

The collection from Spruitje (which means “little sprout” in Dutch) combines plants and moss inside glowing glass orbs to create “self-sufficient raw nature.”

 Van der Sloot&#8\2\17;s Big Brother is €399 from Spruitje.

“Please note that the lamp included in the terrarium has little to no effect on the plants but is shouldn’t be on for more that 6 hours,” says can der Sloot. “Turn off the light when leaving the terrarium unattended.”

Pickles is €\175 from Spruitje.

“Terraria love of bright indirect sunlight,” says van der Sloot. “Be sure to keep your terrarium away from direct sun as the sun through the glass will cook your plants.”

He also advises to “rotate the terrarium once a month about 180 degrees if the plants start to grow in one same direction.”
