Product description

DANDELIGHT is a small luminous dandelion designed by Lonneke Gordijn. Made with extreme care in our studio in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, this small piece of authentic nature reveals a perfect union between fragile nature and modern electronics. Powered by a simple battery DANDELIGHT lights up exposing its unprecedented beauty. Every single DANDELIGHT is handmade and comes with a signed letter and an instruction on how to take good care of the light. The real dandelion seeds, secured one by one to the led-light, are lasting, though require very careful handling. Therefore we designed a special packaging to ensure that the DANDELIGHT will be transported safely to you. DANDELIGHT was the basic idea for FRAGILE FUTURE, a modular light sculpture made of electric circuits and multiple dandelion lights of which a variety of compositions can be build on walls. FRAGILE FUTURE has received various art and design awards amongst which the prestigious ‘Light of the Future’ award from the German Design Council in 2008 and most recently the FF Concrete Chandelier won the ‘Moet Hennesy-Pavillion of Art and Design London Prize’ and has been acquired by the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
