Hyphae - Arboreal Lamps

I originally flagged pictures of these lamps from Nervous System because they looked interesting. When it finally seemed like the right day to feature them on the blog, I did some more digging and now I'm convinced they are the next Really Cool Thing I Need to Have (this, thankfully, is a short list otherwise I'd be a pauper.)

Each lamp is unique because it is designed by computer simulation and then printed in 3D. The simulation starts from a "seed" and builds out the circulatory system to carry nutrients to branches.

Thankfully, the lamps are currently out of stock, otherwise I'd be about $500 poorer right now. There is some pretty cool jewelry based on the same concept. I'll leave you and your credit cards alone now to talk it over.

(AND the light is energy efficient LED.)
