Moss Table

During the 2011 London Design Festival, Object & Line spotted the Moss Table, an experimental table that uses plants to generate energy on a micro level.

Based on the research of Cambridge University designers and scientists exploring how moss and algae can be used to power lights and other small scale domestic products, the moss table may one day be able to power your beside electronics, such as lamps or alarm clocks.

What would you use plants to power?
