What’s Cool in the Lighting World?

Niels Datema has designed a lamp made entirely of graphite, which illuminates when its two parts connect.  He took advantage of graphite’s electrical conductivity to alleviate the need for a switch to turn his Graphlights on or off.  Instead, the base and shade act as positive and negative terminals, which form a complete circuit when they touch and illuminate the bulb.  Graphite, more commonly used for pencil leads, is made up of a specific stable arrangement of carbon atoms that allows electricity to pass through easily.  Read more about Datema’s genius product here

The studio came up with the concept of Bosco Verticale, or Vertical Forest, as a way to combine high-density residential development with tree planting in city centers. Two towers, measuring 80 and 112 meters, are set to open later this year and are already home to 900 trees.
