Green Light from TOKEN, Improving Indoor Aair-Quality

December 14, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Lighting Design

TOKEN was approached by XDESIGN to develop and prototype a marketable product that represents specific educational and environmental goals through an augmented light fixture.

Below is a detailed excerpt from XDESIGN:
The GreenLight is a prescription product developed for the XDESIGN Environmental Health Clinic. The light is prescribed for Inpatients interested in changing their relationship to energy systems; improving indoor air-quality and developing experience with closed and coupled systems design–the chief strategies for improved environmental performance.
This lighting product diffuses light by coupling to photosynthetic processes. Planting strategies can be specified to address particular indoor air quality issues including VOC, benzene and formaldehyde removal.
The GreenLight was presented at Next Fest in LA.


Beautify the Interior with Planting in Hand-blown Glass

July 24, 2011 By: archinhome Category: Modern House Design

This is one way to make the interior room look cool and beautiful. By using planting in hand-blow glass. We can plant the small plant like cactus or other plant that we love into this glass. These contemporary hand-blown terrariums were made in Poland. Designed by Liz Boscacci for Bevara Design.
How to plant in this hand-blow glass?
To plant the terrariums, you first lay down a layer of gravel, then a layer of charcoal to absorb excess water, then the planting soil. We have found that a large number of artists have purchased these pieces, because the shape lends itself well to sort of a curated collection of plants since there are dimensional constraints. This has been an added perk to the design: some very lovely and artistic creations.
Hope can inspire you to beautify interior room.
