Photosynthesis Lamp

This lamp from product designer Meirav Peled Barzilay creates a natural growing lampshade.  The hanging metal grid only requires a light bulb and the vine of your choice.  Over time, the plant is meant to “fill in” the grid, forming an incredibly unique lampshade that blends outdoor aesthetic with indoor design.

The product is called the Photosynthesis Lamp.  There are other versions available with the same idea.

Designers, what do you think: Would you use something like this?
