Most people look at dandelions and call them weeds. In the fall they become seed bearing balls of fluff where wishes are born if you’re a kid. If you’re a grownup, you’re probably upset at the damge they’ll do to your lawn. The Dandelight might get you to start believing the humble dandelion is pretty enough to be a flower again.
As the name implies, this is a light. It’s not just a light though. At first glance it looks like a little (very little) artistic reading light. There’s more to it than that. The poof ball that makes up the flower isn’t manufactured. That is a painstakingly reassembled dandelion. Someone actually used a real dandelion plant and attached it to a LED bulb to create the lamp you see. That’s dedication.
This is a very delicate lamp. It connects to a 9v battery on a thin copper stem. Just like a real dandelion, this little lamp is to be handled delicately. The final effect? A thing of techy, artistic beauty. The Dandelight is $140.
