What a great concept this lamp by Nadine Sterk is! A growing lampshade:
Where there is light, there is life. When you switch on this lamp, it provides you with light. And in return you provide it with
the generating power it needs to grow. This lamp contains all the essential 'mechanisms' that will enable it to develop. All it needs is energy and it starts creating its own lampshade. It knits it slowly around the lamp, pausing only when the light is off. Its growth places it beyond the bare utilitarian necessity of artificial light. The lamp becomes an animate part of space, an existence in its own right.
