Capillary / Lighting

Capillary

Capillary is an electric free table lamp, woking with the
Capillary Bowl principle and bioluminescent algaes.
The water starts its flow from the big glass storage towards
the top and this repetitive process stimulates the algaes;
Thus, creating their unique luminous patterns.For the
sustainability of the Capillary, we have a cycle inside. This
cycle accumulates the excessive material in the water in
time while refreshing the algae water with new artificial sea
water.
