Plankton is a Netherlands-based green and future-conscious design/label that focuses on eco-friendly design and sustainability. Their goal is to provide interior products that are produced with a minimal environmental footprint and maximal life-cycle through durable construction and “good timeless design with a little poetry and soul.”

Their newest piece is a suspension light called Bird In Hand. It is made of ECOLOTEK, a durable, fully compostable material composed of natural hemp-fibers, minerals and binder that was developed by J. P. Meulendijks. It’s playful appearance is an homage to hand puppet shadows. All of the hands are positioned to look like a flock of birds, flying out in circles and the shadows that are cast onto the wall look like birds.
