BLADE OF GRASS is an outdoor lighting solution that takes inspiration directly from the nature, and precisely from blades of grass.
The aim was to design a lighting source that could be easily integrated in any natural environment and become part of it, rather than being something interfering. In fact, as well as blades of grass, the form of this lighting source is thought to be organic, flexible, dynamic and plantable on the ground.
Planting more than one of these lights, the effect will be the same as glowing grass in the night…simply a wonderful atmosphere…
Blade of Grass is completely made of Plexiglas, and works with 1 small battery and 1 led light. The project “Blade of Grass” has been recognized with the 1st prize in the 2nd International Outdoor Furniture Contest by Gandia Blasco, Valencia (Spain).
