Richard Clarkson’s project named Globe, consists of terrariums that can also be used as lamps.
Richard Clarkson, who gained an excessive popularity by his previous project cloud-lamp speaker, gets the attention of his fans this time by his new project, Globe. Globe started as a terrarium project as a hand-made glass workshop that hosts plants not requiring much maintenance. Spheres that Richard Clarkson Studio’s creative team designed as a place to live for ferns and mosses are further developed for functions beyond this purpose shortly.
Spheres are produced in 8-inch and 12-inch sizes that can be used without a power supply as a LED light source. Therefore these designs are also considered as a lamp due to the LED addition. Owing to the micro-wires around the spheres, which are also utilized in clothing industry, the stainless steel wires are almost invisible. Even more fascinatingly, the sphere also becomes “almost invisible” in the dark. Thus, the system provides itself an astonishing view by making its viewers and owners only focus on the plants with an esthetic touch.
An 8-inch LED version of Globe is available for $380, whereas a 12-inch LED version is available for $460 on the project’s online store.
