Ivy Xposed

In a standard interior, most objects only serve one function, but Neffa wondered why. Using this question as motivation, Neffa has created a new concept that marries lighting with plants called Ivy Xposed.

The lamp features cut-away artwork that was inspired by raindrops and that is perfect for training the ivy. By deciding for yourself how far you let the ivy grow out, you can emphasize either the lamp or the plant. The hood’s interior symbolizes the sun and provides an unexpectedly colorful highlight. The light shining through the ivy creates a fun pattern that is constantly changing. The flexible, flame-retardant material is easy on the plants and you can use a regular watering can for your plant. The lamp is LED, too so it’s low-energy and environmentally friendly. Neffa is currently looking for a manufacturer for Ivy Xposed.
