Glasshouse is a lamp which aims to satisfy the desire for fresh herbs in a city kitchen. Its shape was inspired by growth of plants. The herbs are planted inside the lamp along its wall in a kind of gutter around a central opening. This opening not only facilitates access to the herbs and the passage of light from a bulb hanging up in the lamp but it also ensures adequate ventilation enhancing natural microclimate. It is basically about making use of the otherwise useless waste heat of the bulb.
