Deger Cengiz, an architect turned designer, has created new lighting pieces that fuse art and design. On display at the Wanted Design Show at New York Design Week, Cengiz’s Dino Desk Lamp holds true to his style; combining a functional task lamp with a plant pot (or pen holder, depending on your preference). The lamp, made from recyclable felt, has a multi-functional container base to store all kinds of goods—including leafy greens.
The flexible neck can be angled and bent in any direction to meet your lighting needs. The bright LED bulb ensures long lasting bright white and energy efficient illumination. The lamp is available in green, gray, and red.
The best part of the lamp, however, is its base. The Dino’s neck comes out of a felt-lined cup-sized container, which can store everything from pens and pencils, to greenery. By using the power of Dino’s LED lamp, you can grow your own mini eco-system. Small ferns or cacti can turn the Dino into a living lamp—just don’t forget to use a watertight planter.
