Mellea Lamp / LAMP

Mellea Lamp

Mellea Lamp is a concept design product which tries to satisfy the lack of light on the South African towns where nights are dark. Those towns have the precise amount of humidity for the Armillaria Mellea fungi to live. Armillaria Mellea is a bioluminiscent fungi which appears in some south african places and has the property of glowing in the dark due to its nature. The main idea is to place this fungi with some fertile soil inside the lamp and carry the product around according to your needs to give yourself some light.
