Studio Drift's Dandelight uses a "stem" of copper that mounts directly to a 9V battery, and its halo of dandelion seeds are hand-plucked from a real plant and glued, one at a time, to the business-end.
The fragile and luminous Dandelight is a delightful little object that reminds us of childhood optimism and early summer days. Expressing the utopian vision of its designers, the Dandelight marries nature and technology in the most poetic way possible. The design starts with a real dandelion, whose downy seeds have been painstakingly plucked then attached, one by one, to an LED, which connects to a battery via a slender copper stem. The final result is a light-emitting flower that captures one of the most beautiful spring moments in an eternal glow. Made in The Netherlands. 9V battery included.
