Inventive Space-Saving Light Design Also Holds Potted Plants


Bucketlight is a multifunctional design that makes the most of unused overhead spaces in any room. Created by Dutch designer Roderick Vos, the inventive concept is both a hanging plant as well as overhead illumination. The creative lighting keeps floor and desk spaces free of clutter while also creating a comfortable environment filled with natural greenery.

Each piece consists of two LED lights that are sealed into the bottom of two joined plant pots. The cast aluminum lamps can be suspended from the ceiling with a reinforced electrical cable. Plugs located directly in the pots allow users to connect their computers to the sockets which keeps areas organized by preventing a mess of tangled cords. The fun and functional design is a great way to add a little life to an otherwise bare space without creating clutter.

“Because we did not have enough floor space at our office and showroom, and were in desperate need of light, the Bucketlight was born,” explained Vos.
