Marine light by Nir Meiri

April 2nd, 2013 by retail design blog

Through an unconventional use of seaweed as a main material for a domestic environment, the ‘Marine light’ by Tel-Aviv-based designer Nir Meiri plays on the tension between the artistic and the commercial. Originally utilized by ancient cultures for different uses, seaweed today is cultivated and harvested on a commercial scale as a result of a growing interest driven by environmental concerns. The lamp combines a metal base and thin metal structural strings for the shade. The organic material is applied on the metal strings while still fresh – later drying and shrinking to obtain the form of the cover. ‘Marine light’ will be presented at Spazio Rossana Orlandi during Salone del Mobile 2013.
